The 2005 Porshe Carrera GT burst into flames killing both passengers. Story still developing…. Friends described how they were called to the scene and how they tried, unsuccessfully, to help stop the blaze, with fire extinguishers, which they ran out of. At one point, one friend said that one person tried to reach inside to unbuckle the safety belt but it was to hot.
They could see Paul but there was nothing anyone could do. The friend did state Paul was unconscience. Once the fire department arrived they put the friends in police cars because his friends wouldn't move far away enough from the scene. The fire was put out but it was to late for both Paul and his friend Roger.
