A Grantham woman described how her house shook when a car outside burst into flames on Monday night.

Jodie Taylor, who took this photo of the blaze on Queensway in Grantham, said: “I’m not sure how it started but we just heard this massive bang and our house shook and our living room suddenly lit up orange!”

A spokesman for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue confirmed that they were called to the incident at 9.35pm, stating: “A Grantham crew attended a vehicle fire on Queensway. The car was severely damaged by fire, and the cause was an engine fault. There were no reports of any injuries.”

Police were also called to the scene to check if the road was blocked, but on arrival found that it was clear.
