She added that when she stopped the car at the traffic light, her nose caught the scent of something burning but didn’t give much thought to it.

About a minute later, smoke started pouring out and I immediately turned off the engine. Shortly after, flames appeared, prompting me to quickly get my son out of the car.

Syazwana Ahmad said that she tried putting out the fire with a fire extinguisher which was lent to her by a passerby, but it proved to be futile and the car was totally destroyed when the fire brigade arrived.

Car of 3 years burnt to a crisp

Seeing the Perodua Viva which she had owned for merely three years proved to be too much for Syazwana Ahmad, who broke down in tears when she saw the destroyed vehicle.

“Honestly, my heart ached upon seeing the car burn. I cried. The car was bought to make daily tasks like taking and picking up my child from school easier.

“I don’t know what’s the cause for the fire as this is the first time this has happened. The fire department suspects it was due to an engine and wiring issue,” she said.

Nevertheless, Syazwana Ahmad is thankful that neither her nor her son was injured by the fire and has since filed a police report at the Bandar Seri Putra police station and the Kajang Traffic police station.
