A fire appliance from Crewkerne dealt with a parked car earlier on this afternoon, in Cowen Close, Crewkerne, after it caught fire and spread to adjacent fencing and another parked car. They soon had the fire under control using 2 breathing apparatus and 1 hose reel jet. The initial car was destroyed by fire, with the adjacent vehicle sustaining 25% fire damage. Once the fire was extinguished crew used a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots before handing duty of care over to the Police, trying to locate the owners of the vehicles. There were no casualties.
