Authorities were alerted to the blaze on Wicken Place by a member of the public shortly before 7am.

It was reported that smoke from the fire, located on a nearby hill, could be seen from the Wickens Place car park near Bingley Crescent.

It caused extensive damage to the vehicle.

ACT Policing is investigating the fire, but a spokesman could not provide any information on the cause.

More to come.
