Fire crew extinguish car ‘well alight’ at Hankridge Roundabout

One fire appliance from Taunton was mobilised to a car on fire on a busy roundabout in Taunton at 12:05 this afternoon (Friday).

On arriving at Hankridge Roundabout, crews confirmed the vehicle well alight, and donned breathing apparatus to extinguish the blaze using one hose reel jet.

The engine bay of the vehicle was completely destroyed by the fire.

The fire was caused by mechanical failure.
