Firefighters are working to extinguish a vehicle fire at Sainsbury’s supermarket in Newport this evening (Monday).
1 appliance is in attendance off Foxes Road, where smoke can be seen billowing from a vehicle that is alight.
Island Echo understands the vehicle is a small van – possibly a Citroen Belingo – located on the ground floor.
It’s unclear at this early stage if the supermarket has been evacuated.
UPDATE @ 17:40 – The fire has been extinguished using a hose reel and 2 breathing apparatus.
No one is thought to have been injured.
Newport’s Blue Watch have now stood down from the incident, heading back to station with a tub of chocolates and some mince pies as a donation from the supermarket management.
Sainsbury’s remains open as normal.
