Dublin Fire Brigade has warned the public to stay well away from car fires after a blue people carrier went up in flames in Dundrum this weekend.
A video posted to Twitter shows the car on fire just yards away from a house in the South Dublin suburb.
You can clearly see and hear the moment when the blaze causes the car's wheels to explode.
Nice example of why to stay well clear of car fires. Tyres explode with a big bang and lots of energy! Fuel tanks, however, rarely explode ???? https://t.co/L9XiRTCTDA

The fire was quickly brought under control and no injuries were reported.
