Four-wheel drive vehicle catches fire


KOTA KINABALU: A four-wheel drive vehicle burst into flames when parked at a house at Taman Prestij at Mile 2, Jalan Tuaran here yesterday.

It was learnt that the vehicle belonged to a company and its employee had driven it home for lunch around noon yesterday.

At first, the man thought that his house was on fire, but he soon realized that it was actually the vehicle that was ablaze.

He immediately moved his Perodua Kancil parked next to the four-wheel drive and attempted to put out the fire but decided against it when he heard an explosion within the vehicle.

The employee then called the Fire and Rescue Services Department to report the fire.

Nobody was hurt in the incident and the Fire Department was still investigating the cause of the fire.
