Fire Control received several reports of a car on fire on the off slip road to the M5 motorway at Cullompton Junction 28 this afternoon.

One fire engine from Cullompton and one from Tiverton station were mobilised to the incident.

On arrival crews confirmed there to be one vehicle well alight and set to work with one hose reel jet and two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus. The crew also requested the attendance of police due to a large build up of traffic on the slip road.

Crews were able to extinguish the fire quickly and the car was 50% destroyed by fire. The cause of the fire was accidental.

The police are now on scene to assist with traffic duties and our crews are coming away from the incident.
