THREE fire crews were mobilised to a car fire in Sale Moor yesterday.

The firefighters arrived at Pickmere Court at around 4.15pm and found a Vauxhall Zafira on fire.

A hose reel was used to put out the blaze and breathing apparatus was worn by the fire crews.

Approximately 50 per cent of the car was damaged as a result of the incident.

The fire is believed to have been caused by an electrical fault and is not being treated as suspicious.
