In photos: Lorry destroyed in blaze drama near Burnham-On-Sea

These were the scenes in Brent Knoll on Friday morning (February 5th) as fire crews from Burnham-On-Sea tackled a lorry blaze.

Two fire crews were called out at 11.17am after a 17 tonne vehicle was reported to be alight at Sanders Garden World garden centre just off the A38.

Fire spokesman Paul Slavin told "Two appliances from Burnham were sent to the lorry, which was carrying non-hazardous cargo. It was on fire in the cab area."

"Firefighters used one hose reel jet, one foam jet and two breathing apparatus to put out the blaze and they left the duty of care with the owner, who will oversee recovery of the vehicle."

He added that the cause of the fire had been an electrical fault within the engine compartment and added hat there was 100 per cent fire damage to the cab and 10 per cent fire damage to the remainder of the vehicle.
