Fire Destroys Car of Sportingbet Australia's CEO

8 December 2008

Early Monday morning The Daily Telegraph reported that a BMW belonging to Michael Sullivan, chief executive of Sportingbet Australia, burned outside his home in Australia while Mr. Sullivan was in Los Angeles.

The paper said that the 2007 BMW X5 was parked next to the home, which resulted in the evacuation of Mr. Sullivan’s wife and two children who were sleeping at the time. Two fire trucks put out the flames, according to the paper.

“Due to the quick work of the police and fire brigade, the fire was contained to the car and some damage to the outside of the house,” Mr. Sullivan told The Daily Telegraph. “There is currently a police investigation ongoing to determine the cause of the fire.”
