(News 1130) A car-share commuter got a bit of a shock this morning after the Car2Go he had just got out of burst into flames.

Dainan Fraser says it happened just a few minutes after he parked at West Cordova and Cambie.

“I heard a loud bang, a loud explosion, and I looked out of my window and I just saw black billowing smoke,” he says.

“I was like, ‘Oh, I should probably get out of the building,’ not knowing it was going to be my car and then I head out the front door of the office and the Car2Go was in complete flames.”
