Police investigating third car fire in two days

EMERGENCY services have extinguished a third car to catch alight in the Ipswich region since Saturday  morning.

Nobody was inside a burning car when emergency services arrived on Murphys Creek Rd at Lockyer just after 11pm on Sunday.

A QFES spokesperson said the car was fully engulfed and fire fighters had to use breathing apparatus.

Queensland Police were also on scene and the car was removed on a tow truck.

It comes after firefighters and police were called to two separate car fires on Saturday.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services found a vehicle on fire on the Cunningham Hwy at Yamanto about 9.15pm, Saturday, after nearby residents reported hearing a small explosion followed by billowing smoke.
