Car catches fire in Sliema

Malta Independent - - FRONT PAGE -

A car that caught fire in Sliema yes­ter­day af­ter­noon caused a huge traf­fic jam in the area, with con­ges­tion go­ing as far back as San Ġwann on one end.

The ac­ci­dent hap­pened at the in­ter­sec­tion be­tween Old Col­lege Street and Mra­bat Road, which meant that cars pro­ceed­ing to Sliema could not con­tinue on their journey.

Even the driver of a fire en­gine that was em­ployed to con­trol the blaze found it hard to get to the area in ques­tion, given the amount of cars that had piled up.
