Van Fire Closes A19 North of Thirsk

York Uni Fire 9

1:05pm 3rd January 2013
(Updated 1:19pm 3rd January 2013)

Fire crews from Northallerton, Stokesley and Thirsk are currently dealing with a transit van on fire on the A19 southbound carriageway near to the A684 junction at Ellerbeck, according to North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.

The first fire engine arrived just before lunch to discover the van well alight. 

The Fires service say that as the van is fuelled by LPG, a 50m exclusion zone has been set up and as a result both carriageways of the A19 have been closed.

Fire crews are on the scene dealing with the blaze from a safe distance.
