Car catches fire in Sky Mall parking lot
Just before 3 P.M. yesterday, a Kia Sportage SUV caught afire in the car park at Sky Mall Haggatt Hall, St Michael.
Reports indicate smoke was seen coming from under the hood and driver Dennisha Cozier of Golden Mile, St Peter, stopped, exited the vehicle and moved to safety as it became engulfed in flames.
Two other vehicles that were parked nearby received minor damage from the heat as shoppers and staff stopped to see what was going on.
A water tender from the Barbados Fire Service under the command of leading fire officer Stanley Wilkie, along with three fire officers, responded to the fire along with members of the Royal Barbados Police Force. (RL)
