A blazing car fire on School Draw Avenue was quickly doused by firefighters who responded to the engulfed vehicle just before 7 p.m. Friday.

Yellowknife Fire Division (YKFD) descended on the residential area where a car, parked in the Copper Sky Condos and Villas lot, billowed heavy black smoke.

Firefighters brought down the blaze in a matter of minutes, as bystanders – some noticeably worried the fire would spread to nearby units – watched nearby.

Witnesses said the blaze began when the car’s electric plug in “exploded.”

There are no reports of injuries
