RESIDENTS have filmed an intense car inferno on the Gold Coast this afternoon.
Gold Coast resident Russel Mold heard the explosion on Beattie Road in Coomera on Saturday and phoned triple-0.
“I sprinted to the car in case anyone needed help but everyone was a fair distance away so I started filming and took a few pics,” he said.

One not-so-smart motorist – named only as Anthony – noticed the huge smoke plume up ahead and, although driving at the time, began filming on his mobile phone as he drove past. He then went on to post his illegal behaviour on Facebook.
Firefighters arrived and extinguished the inferno shortly before 1.30pm.
Thankfully, no one was injured by either the fire or the inconsiderate driver who was using his mobile phone while driving.
