camper van gutted by fire

Two Fire crews from Fareham and  Hightown  in Hampshire were called to  Freegrounds  in Titchfield  just after 7pm on Thursday evening.

On arrival crews were confronted with a camper van  that was very well alight. The vehicle had a number of Gas containers  in the vehicle.  Despite the dangerous  contents the driver had failed to mark the vehicle  to alert fire crews.  All occupants were free and clear of the vehicle  before the  fire service  arrived.

Crews got to work using two sets of breathing apparatus and two hose reel jets to put out the fire. They also used a thermal imaging camera to check on the stability of the  gas containers . The camper van was left severely damaged by fire, which is thought to have started accidentally. No one is  believed to have been hurt in the incident
