Car fire drama

FIRE crews were called to a blaze in a car which, if left much longer, could have caused an explosion.

Wigan’s fire brigade were called to Westwood Lane, Ince, at 7pm on Monday after residents raised the alarm and upon arrival they knew they had to act quick. The car, thought to be stolen, was dumped down a back street and had petrol poured into it.

Crews worked fast to put it out as it was at risk of exploding just meters from a house.
