A500 fire on embankment

A vehicle fire damaged the A500 Shavington bypass embankment.

The incident happened on the dual carriageway heading towards the Shavington roundabout.

When crews from Nantwich and Alsager arrived, the fire had spread from the car to the grassy embankment, already very dry from recent weather.

Crews used beaters and a hose reel to put out the blaze.

A thermal imaging camera was used to inspect the vehicle.

One lane was closed off while crews dealt with the fire.

The fire happened at around 12.40pm yesterday (June 20).
