RIP Camaro.. (don't enter if you are squeamish)

Pulled up to the car was today with two of my kids inside. Heard a very loud POP! Thick smoke started.. and we bailed.

This is the result..

Wow!! That sucks, but main thing is you, and the kids are safe...

Why would a fuel line just pop like that though?? That's scary..
