West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (WYFRS) were called to Albion Street on Sunday 13 February after a car situated outside of Huddersfield Police Station unexpectedly went up in flames.
It’s currently not known what caused the fire, but so far it is not being treated as suspicious.
The car was parked directly opposite the Police Station’s main entrance and was believed to have been unattended for the duration of the incident.
A fire crew was notified of the incident and arrived around 10:41 am to tackle the blaze, which had by this point almost completely engulfed the car.
A cordon was placed around the area as Firefighters acted swiftly and the blaze was soon extinguished by 11:13 am.
One witness recorded the event on their phone, as the car continued to burn.
