Vehicle Fire in Safari Park


Where would be the absolutely worst place for your car to catch open fire? In the lion enclosure of a drive-through safari. And that’ s what happened to Helen Clements and her two children when they visited Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, Britain.

Mrs Clements said she thought her vehicle had overheated when it stopped within the enclosure.

“Then essentially, we thought: ‘That’s not steam, that’s actually smoke’, ” the girl told BBC News.

“It was getting thicker and thicker and obviously coming into us, and then we saw flames. inch

She sounded her horn and both she and George opened their doors, just before rangers came running towards all of them.

“Unfortunately they were shouting to us: ‘Get back in the vehicle, do not get out of the car’, ” the girl added.

Her son ran out but she called him back and within moments, a ranger had pulled up in a automobile and got them out of the vehicle.

They could not see the lions at the time as other vehicles were in front of them.

The lions did not approach, because they are smart enough to find out fire when they see it. Still, it was a frightening incident. Rangers moved the lions out of the enclosure before medical personnel extinguished the flames. -via Arbroath
