Video shows a wild street takeover in downtown Los Angeles coming to a fiery conclusion overnight.

Preliminary information from stringer service OnSceneTV indicates the takeover occurred at the intersection of 18th and Main streets before 3 a.m. Saturday.

A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson confirmed the location and stated that upwards of 50 cars were present.

Officers were originally dispatched on calls of fireworks being lit, the spokesperson added.

The sideshow, which was attended by hundreds of people, ended with two vehicles ablaze in the middle of the intersection; it was not immediately clear if they were deliberately set on fire or if they caught fire due to another source.

Traffic was seen maneuvering around the inferno and while some motorists honked their horns, others seemed to drive by as if all were normal.

Los Angeles Fire Department crews attempting to extinguish the flames were hampered by the crowds and vehicles, who blocked their access to the burning vehicles, but they were eventually able to put the fire out within ten minutes.

No arrests were made, LAPD said. What was left of both cars was impounded.
