Police have released footage of a vehicle fire in Gordon on Saturday night.

It shows a burning ute parked on a slope near the roundabout of Jim Pike Avenue and Knoke Avenue, with jerry cans in the back.

Police, with the help of residents, created a 50 metre evacuation zone, as the flames reached more than 5 metres in height.

It's believed the blaze caused the hand-break cable to malfunction, which saw the ute roll down the hill before it hit a unit, which set it on fire.

The fire was quickly put out and deemed non-suspicious.

 No was injured during the incident.
