Body camera footage showed flames engulfing the front of the car as Fayetteville police Officers Maggie Murphy and Michael Perry approached the burning vehicle.

Police responded to the crash on Helen Sams Parkway just before 2:40 a.m. after an off-duty officer reported a car crashing into a tree and catching on fire.
