Dirt racer Caleb Ashby had a tough night on Thursday. While he was at Clarksville Speedway in Clarksville, Tennessee, his toter home caught fire.

It is not clear what exactly caused the fire. However, the flames caused extensive damage to his transporter.

The video on social media by Rob McMannis appears to show the fire burning as track officials attempted to put the fire out. Fire extinguishers did not work.

McMannis, or a male voice, can be heard saying that the fire department is across the street. Six minutes into the nine-plus minute video, a fire truck came to put water on the fire.

Sirens were heard around the same time. A fire truck arrived on the scene around eight minutes into the video. The water truck was able to put out the fire.

Ashby was there with other teams competing in the Toilet Bowl open practice for the United CC Modified Series, who are competing at the track on Friday and Saturday night, according to MyRacePass. Being that the fire did not damage his race car, he could be able to compete in The Plunger on Friday then the Toilet Bowl on Saturday night.

“Just wanted to let Caleb Ashby crew know we are sorry and hate that y’all toter hauler burnt up last night,” Windy Hollow Speedway in Owensboro, Kentucky said. “Glad nobody was hurt. If there’s anything we can do to try to help, let us know. Caleb will be a local here at the speedway this season running the new 602 crate late model division.”
