Blaze spreads from van to car and garage


Notts firefighters were called to a major fire last night after a blaze spread from vehicle to vehicle, gutting a garage.

Two fire engines were called to Park Road in Bestwood at 10.25pm on Thursday, June 2 after reports of fire and found a fire involving a van which had spread to a nearby garage and car.

Two cylinders of argon gas were also involved in the blaze - it's unconfirmed if anyone was injured.

The brigade said: "Firefighters from Stockhill tackled a van fire on Park Road, Bestwood, yesterday evening.

"Nobody was injured in the incident, however the van was left severely damaged. A nearby garage and another nearby car also suffered some minor damage in the fire.

Station Manager Richard Hodgeson, who attended the incident, added: "The van in this incident suffered considerable damage."

“Fortunately a quick intervention from the crews in attendance meant the fire was quickly brought under control and the fire was stopped from spreading. It also meant damage was limited to the neighbouring vehicle and garages.”

The fire had been dealt with by 0.20am on Wednesday 3 June.
