Someone was not having a good day...
In the middle of the bustling KL street, right in front of Pavilion KL at 12.40PM today, a silver Mercedes went up in flames!
Though no one is sure if what caused the outburst of flames, it seems that the fire originated from the engine of the vehicle -- also noting that people heard a loud BOOM from the car not once, but twice!
...and it got a whole lot worse.
The flames ended up swallowing the entire car, cause thick clouds of dark grey smoke in the air.
Awhile later, the Fire & Rescue Department arrived at the scene to extinguish the flames.
Sad to say, the car could not be saved.
No news so far on the condition of the driver or if anyone was hurt, but we'll be sure to keep you guys updated the minute we hear anything.
