Swift Response to Car Fire on M6 Junction 19 Northbound

A car fire on the exit slip road of the M6 junction 19 (northbound) caused a brief disruption earlier today. Emergency services swiftly responded to the incident, with one lane temporarily closed for safety measures.

At approximately8.44am received reports of a vehicle engulfed in flames on the M6 Northbound junction 19 slip road. In response, one fire engine from Lymm and another from Altrincham, both dispatched by the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, arrived at the scene.

To manage the situation, the slip road was closed to ensure the safety of all road users while the emergency services dealt with the car fire. Fire crews worked diligently to extinguish the flames and employed a thermal imaging camera to monitor the vehicle for any potential hot spots or flare-ups.

By 09:10, authorities successfully reopened one lane, which allowed traffic to flow, though one lane remained closed for continued monitoring. Police and Highways personnel were on-site to oversee the situation and ensure the safety of passing vehicles.

Fire crews concluded their operations and were released from the scene at around 9.30 am. This prompt and efficient response by emergency services helped prevent further escalation of the incident and ensured the safety of all motorists in the vicinity.
