Suspected arson as car bursts into flames on driveway


FIRE crews were called to Liverpool Road, Warrington, during the early hours of today following a suspected arson attacked on a vehicle parked in a driveway.

Two appliances, one from Penketh and one from Warrington, attended at the scene shortly after 4am.

Crews, one wearing breathing apparatus, used a hose reel jet to put out the fire involving a parked car. The fire is believed to have been started deliberately.

Any one with information about the incident should call Cheshire Police on 101.

Meanwhile in another incident during the early hours of today firefighters from Lymm and Stockton Heath were called to a HGV which had caught fire at Lymm services.

Fire crews wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reel jets to put out the fire. They then checked the vehicle using a thermal imaging camera.

The fire had been caused by overheated brakes which then set fire to wood and electrical items which were in the trailer.

Crews were at the scene for an hour and 20 minutes.
