Truck blaze: Firefighters tackle a blazing truck early today (Photograph supplied)

Firefighters tackled a blazing truck in the early hours of Saturday.

The Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service responded to a report of a fire at 4.53am on Parsons Road and St Augustine Road in Pembroke.

A fire crew found a light truck “fully involved in flames” and brought it under control.

A fire service spokesman said the cause of the fire was under investigation.

This morning’s incident was the seventh vehicle fire in three months.

Police appealed for witnesses to a fire on March 11 where a car and five motorcycles were destroyed.

Firefighters tackled the blaze on Rambling Lane, Pembroke, at around 4.30am and were able to bring the fire under control before flames spread to a nearby apartment.

A police spokesman later said that the incident was “suspicious” and an investigation had been launched.

A car was destroyed by fire in Sandys on February 20.

Another car fire happened in Devonshire on New Year’s Eve last year.

Three of the blazes happened in a three-day period last December.

All began late at night or in the early hours of the morning and were investigated by fire service experts.
