Rescue crews extinguish car on fire on Wilson Rd

Local fire crews were called just after 8am this morning for help with a two vehicle accident along Wilson Rd near Schuppe Dr.

When the North Macksville and Talarm RFS Brigades, and Macksville Fire and Rescue unit arrived they discovered one car was consumed by fire.

Thankfully there was noone in the vehicle, and there are no reports of any serious injuries.

Rescue crews worked quickly to extinguish the fire, mindful of the car's proximity to the river and the potential for contamination.

The car was salvaged and the road was clear again to traffic from 10am.

Many thanks to the North Macksville Rural Fire Brigade for the photos.
