The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

RES­I­DENTS of a Gold Coast neigh­bour­hood were wo­ken by pop­ping noises and fall­ing em­bers after a car caught fire yes­ter­day.

Around 5am yes­ter­day, South­port res­i­dent Heather and her hus­band woke to a car fully ablaze close to Ali­cia St and Blake St in a gravel park­ing lot be­hind a strip of shops.

“We were wor­ried the pole would catch alight,” Heather said of an elec­tric­ity pole a few me­tres away from the fire.

Firefighters man­aged to con­tain the blaze within 10 min­utes and ex­tin­guished it by 5.20am.
