A Tickenham, UK speed camera is obliterated by an intense fire.

A Tickenham, UK speed camera was completely destroyed by fire early Monday. Vigilantes set fire to a gasoline-soaked Ford Fiesta directly under the ticketing machine, generating intense heat and flames that reportedly shot forty feet into the air.
