LandCruiser ig­nites in Barry Pl

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

A VE­HI­CLE burst into flames and was com­pletely gut­ted in Dalby on Wed­nes­day morn­ing.

Emer­gency Ser­vices were called to the scene just be­fore 11.30am, when re­ports came through that a Toy­ota LandCruiser parked at Barry Place caught alight.

Queens­land Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices put out the flames swiftly, and man­aged to save a car­a­van that was parked be­hind the ve­hi­cle. A tin­nie at­tached to the top of LandCruiser suf­fered se­vere dam­age.

QFES had to se­cure the area due to the dan­ger of gas bot­tles lo­cated near the flam­ing ve­hi­cle, and were able to avoid ex­tra dam­age.

The house where the ve­hi­cle was parked re­ceived mi­nor heat and burn marks on gut­ter­ing lo­cated above the LandCruiser.

A QFES spokesper­son said the fire was not be­lieved to be sus­pi­cious, with no one in the ve­hi­cle at the time it caught alight. Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.
