Firefighters from the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service are responding to reports of a vehicle fire in Brading this lunchtime (Thursday).
1 appliance from Ryde has been mobilised to the scene on Coach Lane after being called at 13:17. Smoke has been seen issuing from the engine bay of a Ford Transit recovery vehicle.
The crew is using 1 hose reel jet to dampen down and cool the engine and frontal areas of the vehicle, and carrying out an inspection to investigate the cause of the fire – and to check that any flames or smoldering material have been fully extinguished.
1 lane of Coach Lane has been blocked by the fire appliance and some traffic delays are expected in the vicinity of the incident as fire crews tend to the vehicle.
