First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Firefighters put out a vehicle fire in Sandys last night.

The Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service responded to a report of a van on fire on Overplus Lane at about 11.20pm.

According to spokeswoman Sergeant Russann Francis, the duty crew found the van's front cab “fully involved in fire”.

“Attempts were made to extinguish the fire prior to our arrival,” she added.

“However, it took two firefighters dressed in breathing apparatus . . . to fully extinguish the blaze.”

There were no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is being investigated.
