An elderly Kyneton woman has lost her independence after her car was torched in Ballarat over the long weekend.

The 82 year old woman and her daughter were babysitting at a home in Redan, and heard an explosion at 4:55am.

It was initially thought there was a fire under the car, but it was soon engulfed in flames, and added to the already high number of car fires seen in Ballarat this year.

Anyone with any information about the blaze is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
