Emergency crews were called to Dundas Street, just east of Wellington Street, around 4:20 p.m., as fire tore through a white Honda Civic and sent thick plumes of smoke into the air.

London police remained on scene in the early evening hours and had Dundas Street closed from Wellington Street to Waterloo Street. The roadway has since reopened.

Two men were transported by paramedics to Victoria Hospital with serious burns, said an official with Middlesex-London EMS.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing.
