Fire crews raced to a burn­ing car near Ayr Hospi­tal.

The BMW, pic­tured, was com­pletely destoyed by the blaze and was still sit­ting in the layby on Dalmelling­ton Road taped off.

Firefighters bat­tled the flames with a hosereel jet on Satur­day at 4pm.

One fire en­gine at­tended and no- one was hurt. It has not been con­firmed whether the ve­hi­cle was aban­doned or if a driver was at the scene.

Sta­tion man­ager Greig Flem­ing said:“On ar­rival the crew were faced with a well- de­vel­oped fire within a car, there were no ca­su­al­ties or in­juries at the in­ci­dent and crews used one Hosereel Jet and one breath­ing ap­pa­ra­tus set to ex­tin­guish the fire.”

He said he was un­aware of the cause of the fire at the time.
