FIREFIGHTERS were called to a main Herefordshire road after a vehicle caught fire.

The incident happened on the A44 Bromyard Road in Bringsty at around 2.30pm yesterday (April 14).

A spokesperson for Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said: "A crew from Bromyard Fire Station was called at 2.38pm on April 14 to a small vehicle on fire on the A44 Bromyard Road in Bringsty. A car was well alight. The road was partially blocked due to the incident. There were no casualties."

The spokesperson said that the flames were extinguished using two hose reel jets.


The crew spent over an hour at the scene before leaving at around 3.55pm.

To prevent a vehicle fire, the fire service advises you keep an eye on your car's service and MOT history because most fires can be prevented with regular maintenance.

Some simple pre-journey checks can also be carried out, such as checking oil, tyres and coolant levels, and not ignoring warning lights.
