FIREFIGHTERS were called out to a car fire in Crewkerne yesterday evening (October 11).

The Land Rover Defender, which was parked in Willis Lane in North Perrott, caught fire at around 8.20pm.

A crew from Crewkerne tackled the fire using hose reel jets. The car was severely damaged by the fire and so were the cables overhead.

The fire was accidental and duty of care was left with the vehicle owners, Western Power and BT.
