Cambodia Breaking News,Phnom Penh: A man was driving his car home from the garage repair shop at around 6:40 pm on October 5, 2019, when it suddenly caught fire on Hanoi road, Sen Sok District, Phnom Penh. The man said that he was driving along in a south to north direction, when suddenly he felt the car was getting hot, and then he saw a flame coming from the engine. When he stopped the car and got out, the whole car caught fire, leaving the man in a state of shock.

People living near the scene brought some fire extinguishers, but the fire was too strong, so they called the fire brigade and the blaze was extinguished in half an hour.

The fire was apparently caused by an electrical fault. Fortunately nobody was injured. After the incident, authorities handed over the car to the owner to take home.
