Incident - Car Fire

Date: 29/08/2016
Time: 20:08
Location: Kings Road, Honiton
Area: Central
County: Devon

2 fire appliances from Honiton were mobilised following a call from a member of the public reporting a car on fire outside their property.

Shortly after arriving and investigating, crews confirmed that the catalytic converter had overheated. Dry powder extinguishers had been used by the owner, prior to our arrival, in an attempt to put the fire out. So crews used a hose reel jet and thermal imaging camera, to ensure the fire was properly out, before making the vehicle safe and leaving duty of care with the owner.
