A car burst into flames after two vandalising children inserted a lit firework into the bonnet in southwestern China.

In the CCTV clip, filmed in Zhaotong City in Yunnan Province on February 10, a girl and a boy can be seen stuffing a lit firework into the bonnet of a car parked in a residential community, before running away.

After a short while, smoke and flames issue from the bonnet. Then a man runs out of the building and immediately calls for help.

According to local reports, the children’s parents promised to compensate the car owner.
