An electrical fault is thought to have caused a fire which engulfed a limousine in flames in Cannington this afternoon.

One person is believed to have sustained minor burns to their hands in the fire, which almost completely destroyed the luxury car in the carpark of the Westfield Carousel Shopping Centre.

Fire fighters were called to the scene about 1.30pm, arriving to find the car completely consumed by the blaze.

Fire crews had the blaze under control by 1.55pm, a Department of Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said.

Two other cars may also have been damaged in the fire.

St Johns ambulance crews treated one person on the scene but no one required hospital treatment, a St Johns spokesman said.

The damage bill for the blaze was estimated at $150,000.
