July 5, 2016

Drivers are reported to have fled after a vehicle went up in flames inside the Dartford Tunnel on Saturday 2nd July 2016.  People abandoned their cars after they spotted smoke billowing out of a vehicle.

 

Emergency crews were called just before 1pm to the blaze near Dartford, Kent.

 

A spokesman from Kent Fire and Rescue said: 'Kent Fire and Rescue Service along with colleagues from Essex Fire and Rescue Service, responded to a car fire in the Dartford Tunnel just before 1pm.

Drivers were told to leave their cars and evacuate the tunnel as fire-fighters worked to battle the blaze 

 

'The tunnel's automatic fire safety suppression system activated, quickly knocking back the small fire, and preventing it from spreading to other vehicles or damaging the tunnel.

 

'Fire crews made the scene safe and crews left close to 2.30pm.'
