Three lorries on a Banbury industrial estate have been left destroyed after catching fire in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday, October 3).
Five fire engines were sent to Bidvest on Thorpe Way Industrial Estate after reports of a large fire at around 5.30am.
Neighbours and nearby businesses say they heard loud explosions and bangs as the smoke billowed into the sky.
Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service said the fire was not as significant as first feared but there was a risk of it spreading to adjacent vehicles.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used high pressure hose reels, main jets to contain the fire and protect surrounding vehicles and property.
No one was hurt as a result of this incident and the fire is not thought to be suspicious.
Station manager David Luke said: “This incident demonstrates the need for businesses to have sound business continuity plans and staff training.
"In this incident, the quick response of the company staff to move other closely parked vehicles certainly prevented a greater loss of property”.
