“We were at the O2 store where I work. Suddenly we heard a report that a car was on fire in the parking lot. At first I didn’t realize that it was our car. After a while it dawned on me, it was a shock,” a shocked Hana Burešová described to Denik .
Flames shot from under the hood. “I don’t wish a similar experience on anyone. The moment I watched the car burn, I immediately realized that we were very lucky. It could have happened while driving, I was also carrying my son,” the driver breathed a sigh of relief.

Firefighters extinguished the fire in a few minutes. Most likely there is a short circuit in the battery.
“The car is a write-off. The whole engine burned out. It was an older Renault Scenic, luckily it was insured,” concluded Burešová.
