THREE fire crews were called out to a van well alight on a main road in Chester.

Firefighters attended the scene of the blaze on the A5117 at about 6.20pm yesterday (Tuesday, July 20).

On arrival the crews found one van well alight.

Firefighters used water to extinguish the fire and damped down the area.

A quantity of fuel had leaked onto the carriageway and the crews used absorbent mats to soak the spillage up.

The scene was made safe and then handed over to highways officers.
