FIREFIGHTERS were called out to check over a car which caught fire.
A woman was driving her car in Lake Road, Landport, Portsmouth yesterday when she noticed that a fire had started in the footwell of the front passenger seat. She pulled over and after she turned off the engine the fire stopped.
A young girl was travelling with the woman at the time.
As a precaution the woman dialled 999 and one crew from Southsea fire station arrived and made sure the car was safe to drive. Firefighter Rikki Noble said: ‘The fire was caused by an electrical fault.’
