Mangaluru: Car Catches Fire in Filling Station – Staff Takes Timely Steps

Mangaluru: A sudden fire broke out in a Maruti Omni car which had arrived at a fuel filling station near the Capitanio school on Thursday.

With exemplary presence of mind the staff immediately pushed the vehicle to a safe distance. They and the fire service which soon arrived doused the fire.

It could have been a terrible tragedy otherwise since a fuel tanker was in the process of filling gas in the reserve tank of the filling station. Besides, a large number of students were moving on the road.

The timely action on the part of the staff has been appreciated by the public.
