SOMERSET NEWS: Firefighters deal with van fire
FIREFIGHTERS were called out on Thursday (February 15, 2018) night to deal with a van on fire in Taunton.
The alarm was raised at just after 10pm to the incident in Winchester Street and firefighters found a small fire within the rear of a van involving plastic sheeting.
The firefighters quickly dealt with the fire and put it out using a bucket of water.
“The fire had started accidentally and once the van was checked over for fire spread and hotspots, using a thermal imaging camera, the vehicle was made safe,” said a Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman. “Damage was minimal and confined to the plastic sheeting only.”
