An automatic BMW caught fire in the parking lot of southeast Delhi’s Kalkaji on Thursday morning. The fire also gutted two other bikes parked nearby.
According to Delhi Fire Service officials, a call was received at 11.10 am and one fire tender was pressed into service. “It took half-an-hour to douse the fire. Two motorcycles parked near the car also caught fire and were gutted,” said a DFS official.
Police said the two occupants of the car, which had a BJP sticker on the number plate, got out in time and escaped unhurt. “The car belongs to an advocate. His driver had come to drop a family member near Nehru Place when the incident took place,” said the fire officer.
