VIDEO! Here is YouTube video of the Tony Kanaan fire from Indy's pit stop Sunday.

Tony Kanaan's fire came for the Andretti Green driver during a stop on the 34th lap.

In the pit stop, an ethanol fuel hose didn't turn off, covering him and the car in ethanol.

Kanaan knew that as soon as he was covered he was going to ignite.CLICK HERE FOR THE VIDEO So Tony quickly pulled away to protect his crew, and then his car when into flames.

He suffered second-degree burns to his left and right thumb and some injury to his face.

The Penske crew was fast in helping put out the blaze.As SI notes today, in the days of methanol, you couldn't see the flames.

But orange additives in ethanol make it easier to see racing fires today.Jimmie Johnson would eventually win the race.Hot Photos on LALATE NEWS:Erin AndrewsCrystal HarrisShannon TwinsIkki Twins
