Two save the day

Quick action by two men averted what could have been a major disaster on Thursday when they extinguished a fire in a car that had just exited from the Licensing Authority in the Pine, St Michael.

The vehicle was driven by Guy Myles of Gills Gap, Eagle Hall, St Michael.

“As I came out of the Licensing Authority, the car just cut out and I managed to get it to the other side of the road and a guy said to me that underneath the car is sparking. I got out of the car and it then began to smoke and eventually the engine caught fire,” Myles said.

Adision Drayton and Sunny Thorpe, however, came to his assistance.

“The two guys – one with a bucket and the other with a hose – extinguished the fire. I see these things in movies but this is the first time I have experienced such. It was a scare for me,” Myles added. (RL)
