The well-trained firefighters managed to put out the flames using water and foam, and cooled down the car so that the fire would not start again.

UAQ Police has urged the drivers to get their cars serviced regularly during summer in order to control any possible fuel or oil leakages which are mostly blamed for such fires.

Investigations are on to identify the reasons behind the fire.

Three days back a massive fire had broken out in a four-wheel drive car in the Azbah area of Umm Al Quwain apparently due to extreme heat.

Official records show that seven other vehicles caught fire at different areas of the northern emirate mostly to high temperatures.

These included different types of vehicles, spanning four-wheel drive cars, trucks, trailers and saloon cars.
