A CAR has been severely damaged after a fire on the caravan park in Brean which saw fire crews rushed out last night.

One fire crew from Burnham-on-Sea was sent to the scene just off South Road at around 8.20pm yesterday (February 21).

On arrival, crews found one car on fire in a carpark near to the caravan park.

Crews extinguished using breathing apparatus and a hose reel jet.

A spokesman for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue service said the car was severely damaged by fire and the cause of the fire is believed to be accidental.
