Cowichan man's car goes up in flames Saturday
A Cowichan man found himself in a sticky situation Saturday evening when his car went up in flames in the Glenora area.
The driver of the 1999 Ford Taurus steered the vehicle to the corner of Glenora and Eagle Heights Roads when it ran out of gas.
“He pulled off to the side of the road, he went and filled up a gas can and put that in, and when he went to turn the engine over, the motor started on fire is what he said happened,” explained Duncan fire chief Mike McKinlay, whose crew attended the dinner-time blaze.
Unfortunately, the car’s owner forgot to grab his bike off the back of the car before it was fully engulfed.
McKinlay’s crew knocked it down fairly quickly upon their arrival at about 5:30 p.m.
