Car fire extinguished

Firefighters have extinguished a car fire on Harbour Road near Red Hole.

They responded to a call for assistance from the female driver at 4.12pm this evening and were on the scene within eight minutes.

The driver, the sole passenger, was able to exit the vehicle unharmed.

Seven firefighters were dispatched to extinguish the “fully involved” fire that originated in the engine compartment.

They were able to do so within three minutes of arriving at the scene by using the booster reel - the firetruck's most easily accessible fire hose.

One lane is closed on Harbour Road - the road leading to Hamilton - as the crew clear up the scene.

It is anticipated that it will open again by 5.30pm.
