Ludhiana, April 18

A moving car caught fire late on Wednesday night in Shahpur village under the Payal police station in the Khanna area. The car driver had a fortunate escape as after seeing smoke coming out of the engine, he stopped the vehicle and got out of it.

Interestingly, after the car caught fire, the driver informed villagers who further helped in making an announcement from the gurdwara and in no time, people gathered at he spot and controlled the fire. Had the fire not controlled on time, the flames could have engulfed acres of fully ripe wheat crop.

Meanwhile, he sought help from villagers who extinguished the fire.

Eyewitnesses said wheat crop was ripe on both sides of the road where the vehicle caught fire. If the fire had reached the crop, many acres of crop would have been reduced to ashes.
