2 fire appliances from Middlemoor and Danes Castle (Exeter) were mobilised following multiple calls from the driver and passing motorists for a car on fire at the above location, which is also the entry slip road to the A38 Eastbound carriageway.
On arrival the vehicle was well alight and crews soon had the fire under control, using 2 breathing apparatus, 1 hose reel jet, 1 compressed air foam jet and an environmental pack to prevent the foam from entering any drains or watercourses. This incident is now complete and was brought under control at 17:37hrs. The fire which started accidentally, destroyed the car and once the vehicle, and scene was made safe, duty of care was left with the owner awaiting recovery and Police traffic officers.
