In explosive scenes, the truck then reverses at high speed and goes in for a second push, making sure the car is completely away from the pumps.
Onlookers, speaking Arabic, shout ‘mashallah’ – an Islamic term thanking or praising God.
After ensuring the burning car is safely off the lot, the 4×4 driver then speeds off while the bystanders praise their brave actions.
While it is not known when the video was recorded, it emerges just days after a petrol station in Ghana’s capital Accra exploded killing at least seven.
Footage shows a gigantic fireball lighting up the night sky after the fueling station at Atomic Junction exploded forcing hundreds to flee.
The blaze started at 7.30pm local time (8.30pm GMT) but was under control by the next day.

A government official said it has left a number of fatalities but it was not known the exact number at this stage, according to local sources.
It is also reported that a number of cars had been burned out as fires spread.
The Accra city authorities warned people to avoid the area, which is also home to the University of Ghana campus.
