The funny post comes after Rowe’s car caught fire on Thursday afternoon, March 25. The car caught ablaze on New South Head Road outside Kambala Girls School in Sydney’s Rose Bay while she was picking up her daughter, Allegra, from school.

The former breakfast show host thanked a school bus driver for his “fast thinking” during the ordeal, as he pulled her from the burning vehicle.

“Thank you to the thoughtful, fast thinking and kind school bus driver Mev who got us out of the car, called the fire brigade, cleared the road and then stayed to drive us home,” Rowe said in an Instagram post.

Luckily, Rowe and her daughter both escaped unharmed.

“Thank you to the police and paramedics who are angels. And the tow truck driver! And the mums and dads who stopped to help. We love you,” she added in the post.

Channel Nine’s news anchor and Rowe’s husband, Peter Overton, told 2GB’s Jim Wilson the bus driver rushed towards the car when he saw smoke.

“Fire and Rescue and ambulance and police were there,” Overton said. “They’re all okay and they’re home now. There was a real fear that the car could’ve exploded. I’ll find out the bloke’s details and get in touch to give him a very big thank you.”
