A CAR in a car dealership in Woolston set on fire yesterday, Friday.

Just before 2.10pm, firefighters from Birchwood were called to Juniper Lane where they found a saloon car ablaze.

The fire was extinguished and the car damped down to ensure it was safe.

A thermal imaging camera was used to monitor temperatures.

Firefighters were in attendance for around an hour-and-a-half.
