Burnham police start investigation after car is destroyed by fire

Police have begun an investigation into a car fire near Burnham-On-Sea this morning (Saturday, June 16th).

Firefighters were called to Puriton at 7.18am to find a blazing pink Audi Quattro in a ditch, as pictured here.

"The crew used two hose reel jets and two breathing apparatus to deal with the fire," a spokesman told

The vehicle was badly damaged in the fire and there is a strong suspicion that the car had been stolen.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact them on their non-emergency number 101 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
