The owner of a second-hand car escaped unscathed after the vehicle suddenly caught fire while he was driving.
On Thursday night, Artit Raiphimai, 41, was returning home from The Mall Bang Khae. He felt heat being emitted under the car, which he had been using for only a month.
When he got out of the vehicle, flames suddenly began to spread all over.
Taling Chan police were notified of the situation and contacted firefighters to extinguish the fire on Chimplee Road. They spent 10 minutes controlling the fire but the car was entirely burnt.
Artit had to contact the insurance agency to cover the damage.
