Comments (0)[1]

A transporter lorry and the two transit-type vans it was carrying in Tonbridge all went up in flames this morning. Firefighters were called to Morley Road at around 1.24am to tackle the blaze and used water hoses and then foam, to stop the fire spreading to vehicles or buildings nearby. The crews from Kent Fire and Rescue Service finished at the scene at 2.05am and said there were no reported injuries.

It is not known just how the vehicles came to be on fire. Read more: It’s upsetting to watch but this domestic violence survivor wants you to see it[2] Jenny Lewis heaped praise on the firefighters for dealing with the incident and keeping people and property safe.

Firefighting foam was used to prevent the fire spreading to other vehicles and property nearby.”
