VIDEO: Four wheel drive on fire on Pacific Highway

A Toyota Landcruiser four wheel drive has gone up in flames on the Pacific Highway near Billinudgel.

Onlookers could do nothing to prevent the fire which engulfed the engine cavity.

Emergency services had yet to arrive to put the flames out when this footage was taken by a passing motorist.

The condition of the driver is unknown although there was a group of people standing about 300m away from the car on fire.
