(CMR) Vehicle fires continue to be on the increase with this one just happening on Smith Road in front of Pasadora Place.
CMR was on the scene and caught these live videos and photos of the onset of the fire and the aftermath.
The fire quickly spread as the van driver attempted to locate a working extinguisher. However, he was advised by onlooking not to get too close to the vehicle as the chance of combustion was very highly likely.
Police and fire rescue are currently on the scene and everyone is encouraged to find an alternative route while the onsite investigation continues.
There was also a massive car fire last night which engulfed this vehicle on the Newlands Bypass after 11:00 p.m.
