Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service attended the fire near to Boot Street, between Great Bealings and Playford, at 5am on Wednesday, August 20.

A crew from Princes Street in Ipswich attended the incident and was able to extinguish the fire, stopping it from spreading to a nearby field.

The blaze was extinguished within 20mins, although Suffolk Highways workers were required to attend due to oil and diesel being deposited on the highway.

A witness to the incident said: “The car was completely burnt. Fire service was there promptly and nobody was hurt.”
