“The ambulance was on motion when the fire started from the fuel tank. On noticing it, the driver immediately parked and a crowd came to assist him with fire extinguishers, buckets of water mixed with detergent, buckets of sand and green leaves, but all to no avail.

“As the fire became more intense, the bereaved family forced open the ambulance’s boot and brought down the corpse on a stretcher before the vehicle exploded and was burnt to ashes.”
