A hot mess: Car torched in driveway of sleeping woman’s home | Video

It was a rude awakening for Patricia Lordi early Thursday.

“My daughter woke me up because she heard a loud bang and the car alarm going off,” Lordi, 47, said. “When she looked out the front window the car was engulfed in flames.”

It was about 12:40 a.m. as Lordi watched her Cadillac ATS burn down to a charred frame of metal, aluminum, plastic and rubber in the driveway of her Pembroke Pines home on the 7800 block of Northwest 15th Court.

Lordi’s home security camera recorded video of someone walking around her car and pouring a likely accelerant over the roof, hood and trunk before the image turns into a bright flash as the vehicle burst into flames.
