Yet another vehicle caught fire on Wednesday morning; this time along Oronoque and Charlotte StreetS, Bourda, Georgetown.

The motorcar with registration number HB 8512 was parked in front of Jialing Trading Inc when the incident occurred.

However, prompt response from the fire service saw the flames being quickly doused.

This is the fourth vehicle to mysteriously go up in flames this month. On Thursday last, a minibus in Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), mysteriously caught fire.

A day before that fire, two vehicles also faced the same fate in separate incidents.

Reports are the first fire occurred at High Street and Brickdam, Georgetown, where passers-by saw a man stopping his vehicle and thick smoke which emanated from the bonnet transformed into an uncontrollable fire. 

The Guyana Fire Service was subsequently called, and the situation was brought under control. No one was injured.

Minutes later at Sheriff Street, Georgetown, a similar scenario unfolded when a minibus contracted to the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) erupted into flames.

According to information received, the minibus was crossing David Street, heading in the direction of the Rupert Craig Highway when the driver, Tameshwar Mullin, noticed smoke coming from under his seat. After parking and exiting the vehicle, he lifted the seat and saw the flames.

Efforts to save the minibus proved futile, but firefighters from the Guyana Fire Service arrived shortly after and doused the flames.
