EMERGENCY services have extinguished a third car to catch alight in the Ipswich region since Saturday morning.
Nobody was inside a burning car when emergency services arrived on Murphys Creek Rd at Lockyer just after 11pm on Sunday.
A QFES spokesperson said the car was fully engulfed and fire fighters had to use breathing apparatus.
Queensland Police were also on scene and the car was removed on a tow truck.
It comes after firefighters and police were called to two separate car fires on Saturday.
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services found a vehicle on fire on the Cunningham Hwy at Yamanto about 9.15pm, Saturday, after nearby residents reported hearing a small explosion followed by billowing smoke.
Nobody was in the vehicle at the time.
Several hours later, in a separate incident, a car was fully engulfed at Swift Cl, Redbank Plains.
Firefighters were called at about 3.15am on Sunday but there were no injuries.
