Car blaze extinguished on Rec View Hill

Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service attended a vehicle that was on fire on Rec View Hill in Devonshire at about 6.16pm last night.

Nobody was hurt as a result of the incident which is currently under investigation.

Spokesperson Sergeant Delton White said: “The vehicle was reported to have visible smoke and flames emitting from the engine compartment of the car.”

The fire service responded to the incident with one vehicle staffed with four firefighters to find an SUV with fire in the engine compartment of the car as well as parts of the passenger compartment near the driver's side of the vehicle. Firefighters, dressed in full protective gear, extinguished the fire among a number of explosions caused by the tires being heated and expanding.
