Elec­tri­cal fault causes car fire

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Unsolved Murders -

Fire­fight­ers were called to tackle a car fire yesterday (Wed­nes­day) morn­ing out­side a tar­mac plant. One pump was sent to La­farge Tar­mac, in Watery Lane, West­well around 4.45am. Crews tack­led the flames in a Vaux­hall Zafira af­ter it caught light as the driver, a work­man at the plant, ar­rived for work. The fire is be­lieved to have been caused by an elec­tri­cal fault in the car. Fire­fight­ers wear­ing breath­ing ap­pa­ra­tus used a high pres­sure hose to ex­tin­guish the flames. The driver, be­lieved to be in his 60s, was not in­jured.
