Ladysmith Fire Rescue responded to a vehicle fire shortly before noon on Tuesday, August 4.
The fire took place outside a residence on French Street. The residents quickly phoned 9-1-1, as neighbours doused the flames with a fire extinguisher. Nobody was inside the vehicle when the fire started.
The fire was mostly extinguished before LFR arrived on scene, however some flames were still present under the hood.
LFR sprayed the vehicle down until the fire was under control. It is unclear what caused the fire, however it is believed to have been an electrical fire.
LFR Lieutenant Matt Rickett said that everyone involved responded exactly how they were supposed to.
“This was the exact right thing to do. They did a good job.”
