Holy smoke!

MkCG30-pagewFire officers were pressed into action this morning by a vehicle in flames on a section of the ABC Highway near the Garfield Sobers Roundabout.

After receiving a call about the blaze around 7:35 a.m., one fire tender responded to the scene and within about eight minutes, the fire was well under control.

It did not stop the incident from blanketing the busy section of the highway in dark smoke, which early morning drivers tried to give as wide a berth as they could.

Our roving photographer Marissa Lindsay was on hand to catch all of the action, and indicated that even as firemen battled the blaze, there was uncertainty about the whereabouts of the driver, even though fire officials reported no injuries in the fire.

    A car was broken down there yesterday afternoon, officers had stopped to assist… Could be the same car in which case their was no driver today? Maybe should have called a wrecker…

    Assumptions…. He was actually on my cell phone explaining what happened to someone. Before i left, he went over and spoke to the fire officer in charge. Rather than continue on my way i actually stopped to help the guy.
