Firefighters battle a burning race car parked in front of a Leith St, Dunedin, flat, just before 5.30am yesterday.

Fire Risk Management Officer Michael Harrison said firefighters from Dunedin and Willowbank stations quickly brought the fire under control, preventing it from spreading and causing further damage.

Fire investigators carried out a scene examination yesterday morning and investigations into the cause of the blaze continued.
