    Police in Garfield say they got a call about the accident on MacArthur Avenue around 2 a.m. 

    Footage from the scene showed an SUV entirely engulfed in flames. Later, only a charred carcass of a vehicle was visible, water puddling around it, after firefighters doused the flames. 

    It wasn't clear how many parked vehicles were damaged, nor was the extent of that damage immediately clear. A cause of the accident is under investigation.
