Police probe 'deliberate' van fire in Brent Knoll

This van was deliberately set on fire in a quiet country lane near Brent Knoll during the early hours of Wednesday morning (February 4th).

One fire engine from Burnham-On-Sea was sent to Wick Road at 4.45am where they found the scorched van in a laybay.

"The crews confirmed the van was well alight and got to work extinguishing it with one hose reel jet," fire spokesman Paul Slavin told Burnham-On-Sea.com. "This fire was started deliberately."

Police are investigating whether the van had been stolen.
