Narvaez captured images of flames pouring from the car’s engine and of firefighters from the Cardiff Volunteer Fire Company extinguishing the blaze.

No one from the fire company could be reached for comment or more details.

Interviewed later that day, Narvaez said he spoke to the owner of the vehicle, who recently had gotten an oil change. The driver pulled in to the parking area after smelling something burning and got out of the car before the flames spread.
