FORENSIC testing is being carried out on the torched remains of a stolen car, which was found engulfed in flames on Doolong South Rd in Hervey Bay.
The Ford Falcon, which had been reported missing from Jacaranda Dr in Torquay earlier this week, was incinerated about 1.20am on Friday.
The car has been towed back to the Hervey Bay Police Station where it is being examined by scenes of crime officers.
A delivery driver came across a car burning in the middle of the road in the early hours of Friday before the police and fire brigade arrived on the scene.
" It was cracking and popping - might just have been normal noises but it was still doing it even after the windows had smashed," he said.
