FIREFIGHTERS were called to reports of a car fire in Reading earlier this morning.
A crew from Wokingham Road answered the call at around 1am and would discover a Volkswagen Golf ablaze upon arrival to Cintra Close.
Using a hose reel, those in attendance spent around 40 minutes dousing the flames with a hose reel, but were unable to save the vehicle, which is said to have been written off.
The fire had also spread to some nearby bushes, but the damage is believed to have been minimal.
The incident has been passed over to Thames Valley Police, who are investigating what caused the car to become alight.
Anyone with information is asked to call 101.
