HOUSTON (CNN) - A family of four, including two toddlers, are in the hospital after a road rage shooting caused a major car fire Thursday night.

It all started when the father got into an argument.

Police say the father tried to drive off when the suspect pulled out a gun but the gunman opened fire on the vehicle, setting off fireworks inside and starting a fire.

A 1-year-old and a 2-year-old suffered extensive burns and are in critical condition.

Investigators said onlookers came to the rescue to help the family to an emergency room.

The suspect got away with possibly a woman and two other people in the car.
