Teen incinerated as van explodes in FNQ

A teenager has died after being engulfed in a fireball when a van exploded in far north Queensland.

The 19-year-old was trapped in his stepfather's work utility when it erupted in flames around 3pm on Tuesday.

The teen's family looked on in horror but nothing could be done to save the teen who was incinerated.

The cause of the fire is not suspicious, police say.
