A high voltage powerline lit a loaded tractor on fire in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.

The incident took place on February 16 in Shivpuri, with footage showing the tractor-trolley packed with straw on fire and a man is seen attempting to separate the trolley from the tractor.

As the fire spreads, the driver loses control of the vehicle and jumps off to save his life.

The tractor then rolls off the road into a nearby field and villagers watching join the driver and his friend in trying to douse the fire.

Reportedly the owner of the tractor is Amar Singh, a resident of Loghari, and the driver was Uttam Yadav.

No police report has been filed after the incident.
