Leave vehicle burning (6)


I believe the answer is:


This clue is a double definition.

'leave vehicle' is the first definition.
(eg alight can mean to disembark from a train)

'burning' is the second definition.
(set alight)

(Other definitions for alight that I've seen before include "Descend from vehicle" , "Disembark; on fire" , "Get out of train" , "Come to rest, settle" , "Step off the bus because it's on fire?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun and The Times.
