Garages should be on their guard to make sure cars left outside in the hot weather do not have anything reflective inside that could cause a fire, after sunglasses left on a dashboard caused a car in Nuthall, Nottinghamshire to burst into flames on Saturday (27 May).

Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue issued a warning on Twitter after attending the incident, which required a fire engine from Stockhill Fire Station to put out the fire.

The tweet, which showed a dramatic picture of the damage as seen here , read: “The sun has been strong but beware this can cause fire! Earlier we attended a fire caused by sunglasses left on the dashboard. Make sure you keep reflective objects out of direct sunlight.”
