Durban firefighters battled a fire in a confined space on Monday morning after an unknown woman involved in a domestic family feud set a VW Polo alight.

Members of Durban Search and Rescue (SAR) responded to the call and found that an unknown woman involved in a domestic family feud had set the car alight where it was parked in a ground floor garage/storage area in Treves Court, Berea Mail reported.

The fire spread rapidly and firefighters battled to douse the fire due to the confined access.

SAR members pulled the burning vehicle out onto the roadway using a winch. The fire was quickly extinguished by Durban Fire, preventing the spread to the rest of the building.

No injures were reported and damage was  contained to the storage area.

An arson docket has been opened, but no arrests have been made yet.
