The Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service were called to a vehicle fire in Wootton this evening (Saturday).
Fire control mobilised Blue Watch from Newport Fire Station to the incident on Park Road, where a Land Rover Freelander was found to be well alight.
2 Breathing Apparatus (BA) wearers used 2 hose reel jets (HRJs) were used to extinguish the fire and the surrounding vegetation that subsequently caught alight.
The 4×4 has been completely destroyed with just the bare metal shell that remains.
A thermal imaging camera was also used to check for any hotspots.
The road was closed to traffic for some time while the wholetime firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze.
Thankfully, the vehicle was parked in a layby, meaning damage to the highway has been kept to a minimal.
The cause of the fire is currently unknown.
Park Road has since reopened to traffic and firefighters have returned to station.
