Fire services called out to blazing car in Padiham
Two fire engines have had to rush to the scene of a blazing car outside Padiham this morning, after the vehicle was seen rolling down the road whilst on fire before hitting a wall.
While the cause of the fire has yet to be established, a witness said that the Ford Focus set off rolling down Slade Lane heading into Padiham in 'a balls of flames' eventually crashing into a wall before fire services arrived.
John Taylor, of Lancashire Fire Rescue Service, said: "Two crews, one from Hyndburn and the other from Padiham, attended a Ford Focus just off the bypass on Slade Lane at 8:26. They used two hose reel jets to put the fire out, and there were no casualties."
