POLICE and firefighters were called to the scene of a car fire at 8pm on Monday.

The car was set alight on the river bank between Wharf St and Skinner St in South Grafton.

Witnesses at the scene reported hearing a series of explosions which firefighters said was likely to be the car's tyres and air bag cart- ridges exploding.

The Daily Examiner has heard of at least four car thefts in the Grafton area in the past week but this could not be confirmed with police yesterday.
