A vehicle fire at a car dealership may have been started because the wrong gas was used in the fuel tank.
Fire and Emergency New Zealand senior station officer Mike Ide, of Frankton, said it got called to the forecourt of GWD Motors on Lucas Pl at approximately 12 noon.
"The engine compartment and the front of the car were fully involved in flames."
He confirmed the car was at the garage for repairs.
"They just started it up and basically it ignited."
One appliance and crew from the Frankton station attended the scene. He said the fire was extinguished within about 10 minutes.
The Otago Daily Times was unable to reach GWD for comment.
