A CARAVAN caught fire on a lane near Frome last night (November 14).

Crews from Frome attended the incident on Berkley lane around 4.15pm.

The cause of the fire was believed to have been deliberate.

"The caravan appeared to have been abandoned and deliberately set alight," said a spokesperson for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service.

"Crews extinguished the fire using one hose reel jet, one 45mm delivery, one drag fork, and one thermal imaging camera."
