The fire started under the dashboard, and while many attempts were made to extinguish the blaze, the car could not be salvaged.

Richards Bay motorist Cindy Vos was lucky to escape any injury when her vehicle burst into flames shortly after she arrived at her office in Lira Link, in Richards Bay, in KwaZulu-Natal, this morning, reports the Zululand Observer.

The fire started under the dashboard just as she was getting out of her Ford Icon.

People ran to help with fire extinguishers and the uMhlathuze Fire and Rescue arrived on the scenes within minutes, but it was too late to salvage the car.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time.
