Brown was trying to put out the car blaze when it exploded, setting the home on fire. A good samaritan was spotted on camera helping Brown get away from the fire before the explosion. Brown then returned to the car to try and put the fire out when the car exploded.

He then ran inside the home to get something, officials believe. He later died of his injuries.
