New Delhi: A car caught fire near Akshardham temple in East Delhi on Wednesday apparently due to a CNG leak inside the vehicle, fire officials said.

No one was hurt in the incident, they said.

Fire officials said the fire appeared to have been caused due to a CNG leak. 

"We got a call at around 11:25 AM about the incident. Two fire tenders were rushed to the spot and the fire was doused," they said.
