Scarborough News readers have sent in pictures and video from last night’s car fire in Seamer Road.
The frightening scenes of flames raging from the bonnet of an Audi outside Deans Garden Centre were captured on camera by Ryan Wales, 18 of Crossgates, while Sean Buckross shot video footage of the blaze.
Emergency services were called to the incident at 4.56pm, when the road was already congested with slow moving traffic due to the snow.
The driver of the new Audi reported seeing a warning light flash on the dashboard before smoke started coming from a front light.
The car was soon ablaze in the road, with police and fire crews called to control the fire.
Fire officers put out the flames but had to wait for around an hour for the car to cool before it could be removed from the road.
