Incident - Car Fire

Date: 09/11/2016
Time: 19:34
Location: A36 Beckington Bypass, Beckington, Frome
Area: Somerset
County: Somerset

A fire appliance from Frome was mobilised following several calls from the owner, and passing motorists, reporting a car on fire at the above location.

On arrival the crew confirmed the vehicle was well alight and increased the attendance by a further appliance, also from Frome, for crew safety, as the incident was on a busy dual carriageway. 

Crews brought the fire under control at 20:05hrs, finally extinguishing it with 2BA and 1 hose reel jet. The fire started accidentally, and once crews made the vehicle and area safe, duty of care was left with the owner (awaiting recovery) and the Police (carrying out traffic duties).
