A motorist escaped serious injures and possible death yesterday morning after a motor car he was driving caught fire.

THE STAR understands that fire crew from the York Park Fire Station was summoned to the scene and assisted in putting out the inferno.

Our news team gathered that the fire involved a Mazda motor car, which was being driven by Rohan Bailey, which caught fire along 14th Street, Marcus Garvey Drive.

Reports are that Bailey was leaving the Kingston Terminal when he heard a sound in the engine of his car and he pulled over. Smoke was seen coming from the engine, and then suddenly the vehicle was covered in flames.

THE STAR was told that Bailey, however, managed to retrieve some documents from the burning vehicle.

When our news team contacted the York Park Fire Station, a representative told our news team that the matter is being investigated.
