THE OFFSPRING and their crew escaped injury when one of their touring vehicles caught fire in Canada on Sunday (August 6th). The SUV was completely destroyed, as were all of its contents, including luggage, passports, and laptops.

The veteran punk-rock band was on its way to a show at a festival in Rimouski, Quebec, when the SUV apparently hit an object on the road and immediately started to go up in flames. Luckily, everyone got out of the car safely.
After the incident, the band was still able to perform its show at the Les Grandes Fêtes TELUS fest on Sunday night, but not before sharing video of the harrowing vehicle fire on Twitter along with the following account of the day’s events:
“While traveling through Canada yesterday, something flew off the vehicle in front of us and became wedged underneath one of our SUVs and it caught fire. Everyone got out safely, but the luggage, passports, laptops and pretty much everything else was destroyed. We are happy to report that everyone is doing ok and we’ve made it safely to Rimouski and will be performing tonight at Les Grandes Fetes TELUS. Hope to see everyone there!
