The Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS) was in attendance at a vehicle fire in Sandpoint Road Rum Point. The vehicle was in a detached garage 12 metres away from any domestic dwelling. Crews were faced with a well-developed car fire as the garage door was opened prior to their arrival.
The fire was extinguished and fire investigations are underway, which confirmed the cap to the vehicle fuel tank was blown off during the fire. This incident is being treated as a routine fire and rescue 911 call.
CIFS have confirmed that no explosions occurred during the course of the fire despite initial public concerns.
