Fire Crews Tackle Car Blaze

Earlier this evening fire crews from Douglas responded to a report of a vehicle, well alight at Chester street car park.

On arrival, the Officer-in-Charge of the first attending appliance reported the vehicle well alight, at risk of spreading to other vehicles, with three floors of the car park heavily smoke logged. Six firefighters were deployed to the vehicle and used high-pressure hose reels to promptly extinguish the fire.

Simultaneously as the fire was extinguished, crews searched all floors, stair cases, in and around other vehicles for potential casualties. Luckily no injuries were reported.

Crews vented the area and carried out checks with Thermal imaging cameras.
