Car bursts into flames

Bray People - - News -

A MAN driv­ing a car down the South­ern Cross Road on Mon­day night got a shock when thick smoke started pour­ing from the en­gine.

He pulled over to in­ves­ti­gate and by the time he got out of the car it had burst in to flames. He called the emer­gency ser­vices and mem­bers of Bray Fire Bri­gade ar­rived promptly to ex­tin­guish the blaze.

Mo­ments later the ve­hi­cle was noth­ing but a burned out shell. Wit­nesses said that there was a very strong smell of burn­ing rub­ber in the air.

Gar­dai said that it was late in the evening with not much traf­fic in the area so there was not much dis­rup­tion to other mo­torists.
