Car fires are one of the most common events for firefighters.
Car fires are one of the most common events for firefighters. Really little is enough to ignite a car - for example, only a minor technical failure. Therefore, a completely new vehicle can start to burn calmly. Rarely, however, is a car fire so bad that it would have to be just a wreck. That is, if one does not make the mistake of opening the hood. Then the air gets to the fire, which of course immediately feeds him and gives him strength.
How should one behave as right when the car begins smolder?
- Get out of the vehicle and close the door behind you
- Call firefighters immediately
- Under no circumstances open the bonnet (unlock the bonnet lock as much as possible so that a tiny gap can be created which can be extinguished)
- Start extinguishing the fire with an extinguisher (if available)
