The fire started while the car was in the garage, and residents were alerted to the fire by interconnected smoke alarms installed throughout the house.

Residents and neighbours were then able to remove the car from the garage by getting another vehicle to tow it out to the driveway.

Crews extinguished the vehicle, and confirmed the fire had not spread to the house.

The scene was declared under control at 1.37am.

Fire investigators have deemed the fire as not suspicious.

CFA reminds people that interconnected smoke alarms are vital as when one alarm activates, all smoke alarms will sound. CFA also suggests residents consider installing a smoke alarm in their garage.
