TUCSON - Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents rescued a man after his vehicle caught fire following an apparent tire blowout on I-19 earlier this week.
On Monday, at around 1 p.m., agents arrived to a scene where a vehicle was on fire.
The driver seemed to be injured and could not open the door, so an agent broke the car window and pulled the man out.
While the agent was pulling the man out, others were trying to put out the fire until the Tubac Fire Department arrived.
The man was flown via Life Flight to a Tucson hospital.
