SAN MATEO, Calif. — Investigators were still trying to determine the cause of a deadly limousine fire as the coroner released the names of those who died.

Cell phone video captured the limousine on fire.

Nine passengers were traveling in the Lincoln as it headed across the San Francisco Bay along the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge on Saturday night.

The women were on their way to a wedding celebration when the limo became engulfed in flames.

Only four women made it out alive.

The bride, 31-year-old Neriza Fojas, was among the dead.

The other fatalities were: Michelle Estrera, 35, of Fresno; Jennifer Balon, 39, of Dublin; Anna Alcantara, 46, of San Lorenzo; and Felomina Geronga, 43, of Alameda.

“To watch this long limousine just engulf in flames. It was just a nightmare,” Ricky Brown, the driver of that vehicle, told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Monday.

He was uninjured.

The limousine showed no sign of problems before it caught fire, Brown said.

    Again, I ask, what caused that limo to go up in flames so fast? It's just not normal for a car to explode in flames for no reason.
