THREE fire engines tackled a car fire in a garage this morning (November 18).

The fire, in Dorset Close, Highbridge, spread towards the rear of the property and damaged a shed and the bikes inside.

The cause of the fire is unknown and is being investigated.

A spokesperson for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue said: "One fire appliance from Burnham on Sea and two from Bridgwater were sent to a report of a car on fire in a car port at 8.06am.

"On arrival crews confirmed that the vehicle was on fire inside the car port and that the fire was spreading towards the rear of the property.

"The vehicle was 100 per cent damaged by fire with 50 per cent damage to the garage.

"A shed containing bikes and other equipment was also 100 per cent damaged by fire and a small cylinder was removed to open air.

"To bring the blaze under control and extinguish it crews used six breathing apparatus, one safety jet, one attack jet, two hose reel jets and a thermal image camera."
