FIREMEN put out an abandoned car fire.

Fire crews from Havant were called to High Lawn Way last night where a car was on fire.

Firefighters arrived on the scene at about 9.30pm, where the car – believed to be abandoned – was found ablaze.

While the fire was put out swiftly, a spokesperson for Havant Fire Station said the car was left completely burnt out and unuseable.

It is believed the blaze may have been started deliberately, after firefighters found a petrol can about 100 yards away from the vehicle.
