Man escapes after car bursts into flames at shopping centre

A MAN escaped without injury after his car suddenly burst into flame as he was driving in the car park at Station Square Shopping Centre on Wednesday morning about 10am.

The flames engulfed the entire front of the car, including the front seats, before Queensland Fire and Rescue crews extinguished it.

Part of the car park was closed to traffic until the burnt-out ute could be towed away at about 1:45pm.

Other cars close to the fire were threatened by the flames, but received no damage.
