Car fire

Have your say

AN ELECTRICAL fault is being blamed for an early morning car fire.

Crews from Stranton Fire Station were called to Studley Road, in Hartlepool, at 3.50am today by a passer-by who saw a vehicle on fire.

It is believed the fire started near the front door of the grey Vauxhall Corsa that was parked in a lay-by in the road.

The interior was badly damaged in the blaze, which firefighters have put down to an electrical fault.
