This van was left completed gutted after an accidental fire in a village lane near Highbridge on Sunday afternoon (June 12th).
Burnham-On-Sea fire crews were called to Pillmore Lane, Watchfeld near the junction with Mark Causeway at 3.25pm after receiving several calls reporting the vehicle in flames.
A fire spokesman said: “Fire control received multiple calls to a van on fire. We mobilised one appliance from Burnham-On-Sea.”
He adds: “Once on scene, crews confirmed the van was well alight and the fire was spreading to hedgerows so they requested a second pump.”
“Once the second appliance was on scene, crews were making efforts to extinguish using two breathing apparatus and a main jet. Police arrived on scene and assisted with traffic management.”
“The fire was extinguished and crews confirmed the van was 100% damaged by fire. The fire was deemed as accidential.” No-one was hurt.
