Quick ac­tion con­trols fire

Avon Valley Gazette - - NEWS -

A QUICK re­sponse from York fire­fight­ers averted what could have de­vel­oped into a se­ri­ous fire on Great South­ern High­way just west of York on Sun­day.

A mo­torist trav­el­ling on the high­way no­ticed smoke com­ing from un­der the bon­net of his car. He stopped on the side of the road, lifted the bon­net and the car was quickly en­gulfed in flames. The fire quickly spread into nearby pad­docks.

Fire­fight­ers were soon on the scene and brought what have been a dev­as­tat­ing blaze un­der con­trol. No one was in­jured and the high­way was tem­po­rar­ily closed. The car was de­stroyed.
