That's all the time NSW North Coaster Kelly Williams and her children Lil, 14, three-year-old Jarlee and five-month-old Loutanah had to get out of their car last Thursday, November 26, before it was engulfed in flames.
"We're lucky to be alive,'' the Taree 39-year-old mother of seven said this week.
They were in Port Macquarie because Lil plays in the Hastings Super League under 18 nine-a-side hockey competition.
"We went to Shelly Beach so I could feed the baby and Lil was going to have a run on the beach with Jarlee,'' Kelly explained.
"We were just about there and Lil thought she smelled smoke coming out of the air con vent.''
Suddenly the smell became stronger.
"I knew there was something wrong,'' Kelly said.
Getting her kids out of the car became priority number one.
"So I kept driving up to the boat ramp to get away from other cars. I was lucky that there was a spot with two car lengths distance to another car.''
However, the drama was just starting.
Kelly told Lil to assist Jarlee out of the car while she raced to get her baby out of the capsule.
"I screamed at Lil to help get Jarlee out of car and get across the road. Lil was great, she stayed calm and didn't panic at all. In the end I think that made the difference.''
Lil raced across the road with Jarlee, and Kelly arrived with the baby moments later
"Three minutes later we heard the first bang as the car went up in flames,'' Kelly said.
"We were so lucky. I think we had a couple of guardian angels looking after us that day.''
The car was a write off. Kelly understands the fire started because of an electrical fault in the air conditioning.
"It went up really quickly. By the time we got there it was well and truly on fire," Port Macquarie Fire and Rescue station officer Geoff Peacock told the Port News, adding the family was extremely lucky to get out of the vehicle when they did.
Lil lost all her hockey gear in the blaze. She has to attend State trials in Sydney in a fortnight. The car was also packed with gear for a family holiday in Nambucca Heads.
Kelly managed to get her handbag out. It contained her licence, a nappy and some wipes.
"That was lucky, because the baby did a big poo soon after,'' she smiled.
"But possessions are nothing. I told Lil we can buy her some new hockey gear. We're all safe and that's the main thing,'' Kelly added.
