A unit of firefighters from Pardubice intervened on Monday at 12.16 pm in the Dubina housing estate in Pardubice, where a vehicle fire broke out. The owner tried to push the vehicle himself away from the stationary vehicles and then opened the hood next to the vehicle. The flames caught fire and burned the man. The fire was extinguished by firefighters at 12.30.

It was a Škoda Octavia passenger car. The cause of the fire was most likely an unspecified technical failure in the engine compartment. The damage was preliminarily estimated at 40 thousand crowns. We managed to save hundreds of thousands of crowns around the stationary vehicle.
