The National Fire Authority (NFA) is investigating an incident where a Toyota Prius Hybrid car caught fire on Tuesday.

A 35-year-old mechanic of Nadi watched helplessly as his vehicle was destroyed by the fire at Naumabale outside Sigatoka.

Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro confirmed the incident happened around 11.52am.

The driver was said to be travelling towards the Sigatoka Valley Road from Sigatoka Town.

“The 35-year-old mechanic of Nadi whilst driving noticed smoke coming out from the engine compartment,” she said.
