Fire control received a call reporting a van on fire at the above location this afternoon.

Crews from Cheddar and Taunton were quickly mobilised to the incident, including the Environmental Protection Unit from Taunton due to welding equipment and possible gas cylinders being on board the van.

Using 1 hose reel jet, 1 thermal imaging camera, 1 impact driver, and 1 telehandler from on site crews were able to remove a diesel generator from the van to open air, in order to fully extinguish the fire.  The van was slightly damaged due to smoke and there was no impact on the environment. The fire is being treated as accidental.
