A resident quickly thought to avert a major catastrophe when a car caught fire on a busy street in Abu Dhabi Sunday morning and went to the car and made numerous attempts to extinguish it.

Two cars crashed into Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Street, known as Al Salam Street. In a video clip, a woman appears walking away from a car while a fire breaks out inside.

A philanthropist turns towards the car and borrows a fire extinguisher from the minibus driver on the road. However, the fire extinguisher did not have enough pressure to kill the fire.

A small explosion was heard shortly afterwards, then he resided and attended another fire extinguisher, which controlled the ignition.

Once they were notified, the police arrived and reopened the road for traffic.
