Firefighters tackle ‘deliberate’ car fire
FIRE CREWS were scrambled in Torrington in the early hours when a car involved a collision last night (Tues) was reported to be on fire.
A fire engine from Torrington was first called to the scene just before 8pm to Station Hill following a call from an ambulance that had come across a two vehicle collision.
Nobody was trapped or injured in the collision but crews made the vehicles safe and cleaned up a small amount of fuel on the highway.
Then just before 3am today (Wed) a fire crew was called out again to reports of a car on fire in a public car park on Station Hill.
Crews confirmed the car was one of the two vehicles involved in the earlier collision, and was well alight on arrival.
