'We feared it would blow': Car fire erupts outside cafe
FIREFIGHTERS have saved a second car from certain destruction after a hatchback went up in flames inBuderim this morning.
Crews were called to the car fire on Jorl Ct about 9.30am and found a car "well alight", a Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said.
No one was inside the vehicle at the time.
Fireys worked to protect a second car that was close to the flames before the fire was extinguished about 10am.
Witness Sam Deen, owner of Hamptons Espresso, said a woman ran into his cafe looking for a fire extinguisher and tried putting the fire out before it got "out of hand".
"We stayed back and stopped people from entering the street in fear it would blow," he said.
The QFES spokeswoman said fireys remained on scene to ensure the scene was safe.
