Kevin called 999

A father called 999 when he saw a cab on fire before realizing his daughter was INSIDE the blazing car.

Kevin Pollard left work at just after 6am today and was walking home before spotting the blaze. Flames and smoke were quickly rising.

He then called his daughter, who had to arrive at work earlier than usual, to tell her to take a different route.

To his surprise, she revealed that she had departed earlier and had actually been in the on fire cab.

The moment the bonnet began to smoke, the driver stopped.

Kevin’s daughter had then got out and gone to get a bus instead.

He told YorkshireLive : “The whole front of the car was on fire. It was getting worse by the second.”

Kevin spoke with the driver, who, happily, had called West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service and was unharmed.

Kevin also dialed 999 to ask the fire department to dispatch a crew to the location in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

He added: “After that, I rang my daughter who I knew had to get to work early today to advise her to avoid going this way. And she told me she’d already left and had actually been in the taxi.

“Apparently the bonnet had started smoking, so the driver had pulled over to open it, and it had caught fire.

“So my daughter had to get out and got the bus to work instead.”

Kevin stayed with the taxi driver until the fire brigade arrived, and were able to put out the blaze.

“The whole car had gone up by that point,” he said. “Luckily it didn’t explode or anything.
