A car was destroyed by fire in Keysborough last night.

The BMW SUV was well alight when crews arrived on scene.

It’s believed the male driver was waved down by a following car which could see smoke billowing from underneath the car.

The fire was controlled in less than 10 minutes but unfortunately the car was destroyed.

The eastbound lanes of Cheltenham Road were closed for around 30 minutes.
