Car bursts into flames
A 34-YEAR-OLD WELDER escaped injury yesterday after his car caught fire in heavy traffic in Warrens, St Michael, opposite Chefette Restaurant.
It was just after 6 p.m. while Mark Edghill of Cliff Land, St John, was driving a 1997 Suzuki Baleno he bought two weeks ago when the incident occurred.
“. . . The car stalled. As I attempted to start the car, there was a loud explosion and my car caught fire,” he said.
Some people rushed to help put out the fire, among them Anthony Morris, operations manager of the nearby Shell service station, who was armed with a fire extinguisher and two buckets containing sand.
A tender from the Arch Hall Fire Station responded, but the fire was under control when it arrived. (RL)
