Firefighters in Halifax were called to an incident in Pellon today (Thursday) when a piece of electrical equipment set fire to a car on Long Lover Lane.

The underground equipment caught fire and then vented through the inspection hatch, setting a nearby parked car on fire too at around midday.

Workers at the nearby Sabel Cosmetics factory saw the fire, which produced flames of about 12 foot high, and rushed out with fire extinguishers to put it out.

The car was unoccupied but was badly burned at the front.
