Firefighters were called to a camper van on fire in Donaldson Court off Miller Road, Banury last night (Monday).
They attended at about 2.15am within six minutes and found the transit van well alight with the heat and flames beginning to spread towards other vehicles and properties. Crews uses high pressure hose reels to prevent the fire spreading to the roof of the closest house.
Ben Johnson, firefighter, said: “If we had been delayed by a couple of minutes we could have been dealing with a much large fire involving the eaves and roof of somebody’s house.”
Firefighters will be in the area today (Tuesday) offering fire safety advice and smoke alarms to residents.
