KUALA LUMPUR: An ex-employee of a consultancy company was injured when she allegedly rammed her car at the office's building before setting the car and herself on fire at Bangsar South, Jalan Kerinchi here today.

It is understood that the woman in her 30s resorted to the action as she was not satisfied with her former employer.

City police Criminal Investigation Department chief Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad said the victim sustained 50 per cent burns on her body.

"The victim managed to be saved and was sent to Universiti Malaya Medical Centre for further treatment," he said.

Zainuddin said they are in the midst of investigating the incident.

City Fire and Rescue Department assistant director (operations) Azizan Ismail said the department received a distress call at 5.05pm.

"Eight firemen were deployed to the scene to control the fire.

"The fire was put out in less than 10 minutes. However, the victim sustained 50 per cent burns while the rear part of the car was damaged in the fire," he said.

It was learnt that passers-by had put out the fire using a fire extinguisher when they saw the victim lit herself on fire.

It is also learnt that firemen found bottles of petrol and a Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) barrel stored at the boot of the car.
