(ADW) A car caught fire in early hours of Sunday morning in Esch-sur-Alzette with flames reaching several metres into the air.

The incident happened on Place des Remparts when a man noticed a burning smell coming from his car having just parked it in a garage. He then discovered a fire under the bonnet and moved the vehicle out of the garage before calling the fire department.

However, by the time firefighters arrived the car was completely ablaze and flames of 2-3 metres high were reported.

The fire was quickly extinguished but the vehicle was completely gutted.

Luckily nobody was reported injured in the incident.
