This just happened right outside my digs-went up pretty quick. No one hurt and I just managed to move my car which was in front of the red KA.

We were in the lounge (big windows) and heard them pull up and someone say call the fire brigade. I looked out the window and there was a scorch mark on bonnet and a little bit of smoke-looked electrical to me. BMW diesel. They tried popping the bonnet but it wouldnt open, the pub opposites landlord came out with an extinguisher and tried quelling it through the grill. I went and got my housemate from the back and by the time we'd got back there was loads of smoke. I went out and immediately moved my car and told them the owner of red Ka lived opposite in bottom flat which they proceeded to knock on door but no answer. Within 2 minutes there were loads of flames underneath and looked beyond saving. Another 2 mins and tyres were exploding and people freaking saying it's gonna blow up etc and the Ka started smoking. The Ka owner unfortunately was in their back garden and didnt hear the commotion somehow and it was too late by now to move it. We were getting a bit concerned that the fire brigade hadnt arrived as it seemed to be getting a bit close to our wooden windows and bay roof, but they turned up within 6-7 minutes. Quite scary for a minute really.

That was lucky the KA didn’t go up and then your place, fires are scary! 

I know mate we were wishing the Fire Brigade would hurry once we saw smoke coming off the KA and luckily they did. I think it actually protected our place a bit!!
