THIS dramatic image shows the moment a car burst into flames in Brighton-le-Sands.
The BMW X5, parked on Holden Road, was captured ablaze by a local resident who claimed the noise was so loud it woke him up.
It happened at around 12.30am on Wednesday, July 22 and thankfully there have been no reported injuries.
Emergency services were called out to extinguish the fire and the vehicle removed.
The local resident told the Champion: “The noise of the fire awoke me so I rang the emergency service and took the photo whilst waiting for the fire brigade. I’m not sure if the fire was deliberate and it was an accident, like a vehicle fault.”
