FIREFIGHTERS were called out to Dunkery Hill on Exmoor this morning to tackle a vehicle fire.

Firefighters from Porlock and Minehead were sent to the scene at around 10.30am today (Saturday, July 11).

On arrival the crews found the vehicle and its attached horsebox well alight.

Crews used four breathing apparatus, a compressed air foam jet, and a hose reel jet to extinguish the vehicle fire as well as a section of tarmac and the grass verge nearby. 

The fire is believed to have been accidental.
