Probe after car is destroyed in blaze

POLICE are investigating after a car fire in a compound.

A crew from Stranton Fire Station was called to Usworth Road Enterprise Centre, in Hartlepool, where the vehicle was well alight.

A station spokesman said the blaze was well underway and although difficult to tell what make the car was, it was thought to be a Vauxhall Astra.

Firefighters spent 40 minutes at the scene after a security guard raised the alarm at around 11.50pm on Wednesday night.
