How to React in Such Situations
In an event of your car catching fire, it’s crucial to stay calm and act swiftly. First, pull over to a safe location away from traffic. Turn off the engine and evacuate the vehicle immediately. Ensure all occupants exit promptly. Dial emergency services to report the incident. Do not attempt to open the hood if there are signs of flames, as oxygen might intensify the fire. Distance yourself from the vehicle, at least 100 feet. This is necessary to avoid potential explosions or flying debris. Refrain from trying to extinguish the fire yourself, as it requires professional intervention. Once at a safe distance, monitor the situation, and prioritize personal safety while waiting for emergency responders. Always remember that your life is the top priority in such scenarios.
