A car was totally burnt out after it caught alight on a Pyes Pa orchard.
Tauranga Fire Brigade were called to Joyce Rd about 5.15pm yesterday.
Senior station officer Mark Keller said a man was driving his car through the orchard when it caught fire.
He said the blaze was most likely caused by a chainsaw in the boot of the car.
``The car was totally burnt out by the time we got there. The man had managed to get himself out and he wasn't hurt.''
