A Daytona Beach woman was saved in the last moments before her car went ablaze as she was tied up inside on Thanksgiving night, police said.

Daytona Beach officers responded to a call reporting a woman in troubles when they discovered the victim around 8 p.m. in a dark parking lot at the corner of ISB and Hagen Terrace. The woman's wrists were zip-tied to the steering wheel while her mouth, head, and ankles were tied with silver duct tape.
