A vehicle went up in flames after crashing into a pole along Parkcrest Avenue, near Nicolani Street, in Brocklehurst on Monday night (Aug. 10).
Kamloops Fire Rescue tended to the vehicle, which was fully engulfed in flames in the 1500-block of Parkcrest Avenue at about 7:30 p.m.
The vehicle struck a telephone pole before catching fire, with flames spreading to adjacent grasses, KFR Platoon Capt. Mike Haines told KTW.
That grassfire grew to about 100 square feet before firefighters had it and the car fire extinguished.
KFR had no word on injuries, number of occupants in the vehicle or cause of the fire.
A resident who took video of the burning vehicle, but did not wish to be named, said he heard the crash while outside his home.
Two males emerged from the vehicle after crashing into a pole and seemed to be uninjured, he told KTW. He said he spoke with the driver, who indicated the steering column locked, leading to the vehicle spinning out.
Police on scene moved people away from the vehicle, which eventually burst into flames that also engulfed the telephone pole before firefighters arrived, he said.
