FIREFIGHTERS have extinguished a car fire in Wanniassa.
ACT Fire & Rescue was alerted to the incident on Erindale Drive at 6:52pm and arrived on the scene a short time later.
Crews were able to quickly extinguish the blaze.
The driver of the vehicle noticed a fire in the engine compartment of the 4WD and he pulled-over to the side of the road.
The gentleman assisted his wife and two dogs in exiting the vehicle, then a passer-by stopped and was able to help by letting the dogs into his car.
