Van on fire

M40 Southbound, between Junction 6 (Lewknor) and Junction 5 (Stokenchurch)

One appliance and crew from Thame, one from High Wycombe and one from Wheatley attended, along with an officer.

A van was on fire on the hard shoulder of the motorway.

The firefighters used:

  • Two sets of breathing apparatus
  • Two hose reel jets
  • Absorbent pads

The southbound motorway was closed while they worked at the scene. Diesel leaking from the van had spread across the road surface.
