A Ministry of Finance vehicle fire Thursday caught fire along Jinja road in Kampala.
Joseph Mugisha, the director fire rescue team, said the incident happened near Electoral Commission offices.
He said an electric short circuit could have sparked the fire.
The vehicle in question was a Nissan car, which, according to Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, had a wiring system problem.
Policemen on the scene tried to extinguish the fire until the fire brigade arrived.
Onyango said police later towed the vehicle off the scene without serious damages.
