Heart-stopping moment Jessica Rowe and her teenage daughter narrowly escape horror car fire as their Volvo SUV suddenly bursts into flames during the school run
TV star Jessica Rowe and her teenage daughter are traumatised by unhurt after fleeing their car as it suddenly burst into flames.
Rowe was picking up the 14-year-old from school in Sydney’s eastern suburbs on Thursday afternoon when the black Volvo XC 60 began billowing smoke on New South Head Rd in Rose Bay.
A passing bus driver named Miev flagged the vehicle down and helped them get out of the car and to safety.

‘He got the everyone to move away from the footpath, directed traffic, rang the fire brigade and then drove them all home,’ Rowe’s manager David Wilson told the Wentworth Courier.
‘There’s no hospitalisation or anything like that involved, but both are really rattled as you would be,’ Mr Wilson said.
Rowe’s husband, Nine News presenter Peter Overton was notified and has since spoken to his wife and daughter to check they were okay.
More to come.
