Firefighters were called out to a community centre car park this morning after a van was spotted on fire.
Flames were seen coming from the white vehicle while it was parked by Crofton Community Centre in Stubbington.
A crew from Fareham Fire Station received a report of a ‘small fire’ at about 7.50am.
On arrival they discovered the flames were coming from the engine compartment, and used two sets of breathing apparatus and a hose reel to put out the fire.
Hampshire Fire Control tweeted the van had been ‘severely destroyed’ by fire.
Highways England and police were also called out after the water from the hose reel began to freeze on the ground due to the cold weather.
The crew’s stop message came in at 8.13am.
