In Mizhhirya district a car caught fire while moving
Last night, there was a fire near the village of Soymy in Mizhhirya district. On the motorway Dolyna-Khust a car "Moskvich" released in 1991 caught fire while moving. The owner of the vehicle, driving to Mizhhirya from the village of Richka, noticed smoke coming from under the hood. Wasting no time, at 18:13, the man reported the fire to the Rescue Service "101".
Even before the arrival of firefighters, the driver began fighting the flames using a fire extinguisher. Thus he managed to extinguish the fire on the right side of the engine compartment. Firefighters of the 4th State Fire and Rescue Unit continued extinguishing the fire and in just 3 minutes completely eliminated it.
Presumably, the cause of the fire was electrical short circuit in the engine compartment of the vehicle. As a result, the fire damaged the engine compartment. The rest of the car was not damaged. The damage caused by the fire is being established.
