Burnt out jeep in Clane was parked there by owner because of a flat tyre

BMW burnt out
A jeep that was burnt out in Clane last night was parked there earlier in the day by the owner after he suffered a puncture to one of the tyres. The BMW X5, which was a 03 model, was left completely burnt out at the side of the road last night after it burst into flames at around 9pm beside a gated entrance to a field on the Kilcock road into Clane, less than one kilometre from the town centre. Gardai said that the owner of the jeep was a local Clane man and that they have yet to determine whether or not the fire was the result of a mechanical failure or if it was started purposely. Examinations are being done to determine the cause of the fire.
