Incident - Van fire

Date: 24/11/2016
Time: 01:48
Location: Westbridge Close, Okehampton
Area: Central
County: Devon

One fire appliance from Okehampton station was mobilised to reports of a vehicle on fire at Westbridge Close, Okehampton.

The vehicle was well alight when crews arrived so they set to work using two breathing apparatus sets and one hose reel jet. The occupants of one nearby property had evacuated due to the proximity of the fire to their house, unfortunately this meant that the smoke from the fire had entered the property. The fire crews in attendance requested an additional pump for its positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the house of smoke.

The vehicle, which was a commercial van, was severely damaged by fire.
