Quick escape as car catches fire
A MAN was lucky to get out of his car just seconds before it ignited into flames on Monday afternoon.
The Whitsunday man was driving along Paluma Road, near Centro in Cannonvale at about 2pm when he noticed smoke coming from the air-conditioning vent in his blue Ford Falcon.
He pulled into the Whitsunday Christian College car park and managed to get out before it caught alight.
The car was gutted from the flames and the fire brigade were called to the scene to extinguish the fire.
The man was not injured.
