Caravan Fire at Powick

The incident happened at just before Midday today (Tuesday, July 12) and on arrival firefighters found the caravan to be well alight. Damage was also caused to two nearby vehicles.


Watch Commander Carl Horsburgh from Worcester Fire Station said: "Two fire crews from Worcester and one from Malvern dealt with the fire and at its height three hose reels and one main jet were in use. Thankfully, due to the wind direction, the A449 was not affected by smoke travelling across the carriageway."

The stop message was given at just before 1pm and it is believed the cause of the fire was accidental.
