People escaped unharmed after the car they were travelling in was "fully destroyed" by a fire.

Firefighters from Oswestry were called shortly after 1.30pm on Friday, July 5, to reports of a car on fire at Craigllwyn, between Llansilin and Trefonen.

The occupants of the 4x4 vehicle managed to get out safely before fire crews arrived at the scene.


Firefighters then used breathing apparatus, small gear and a thermal imaging camera to tackle the blaze.

In a statement, Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "At 13:34 on Friday, 5 July, 2024, SFRS Fire Control received a call reporting a fire classified as car fire in Oswestry.

"Fire involving 4x4 vehicle, the car was fully destroyed by fire but all occupants were safely out of the vehicle prior to arrival of Fire Service."

Firefighters' involvement in the incident ended by 4.15pm after the fire was successfully and safely extinguished.
