Darlinghurst Blog: Detritus: Domino's Scooter Fire

Domino's Pizza may have to be delivered on foot after its fleet of home delivery scooters were turned to black dust on Monday night following a fire at the Star Car Wash yard.  
I don't know if it was a targeted fire or if one of the scooters exploded, but yesterday the pile of sooty metal was cordoned off with tape from the NSW Fire Brigades, whose Darlinghurst station is just a few doors down Victoria Street and Darlinghurst Road.
The fire didn't affect anything apart from the scooters.

The lawn-mower-style hum of the Domino's scooters and the Cuisine Courier delivery drivers is one of those common sounds around Darlinghurst's streets at night. I wonder how long it will take them to replace the fleet.

Like the idea of a scooter spontaneously combusting ...
