FIREFIGHTERS tackled a car fire in Great Warford.

A crew from Wilmslow were initially called to reports of a building on fire on Merrymans Lane at 10.30pm last night. 

They arrived to find it was in fact a saloon care that was on fire.

The vehicle was well alight and crews used a single hose reel to put the fire out.

A fire investigation established that the car had been deliberately set alight.

A home safety investigation was carried out at the property before the crew left.
