ORLANDO, Fla. – A funeral home van carrying a body on I-4 caught fire Saturday.

The scene unfolded on Westbound I-4 near SeaWorld just before 11 a.m.

Images show the white van completely engulfed in flames with thick black smoke billowing out.

Before you start to assume that the body got a direct cremation, troopers said the driver removed the body from the burning vehicle before the flames reached it.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, no one was injured during the incident.
