FIREFIGHTERS called in the police after dealing with a caravan fire.

Crews from Wells and Street were called to Kennard Moor Drove, Glastonbury, at around 4.45pm on Tuesday afternoon (November 5).

"On arrival, crews confirmed the caravan well alight, and got to work extinguishing the blaze using a compressed air foam jet," a spokesperson for the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said.

"Police were requested due to the nature of the incident.

"Once the fire was out, crews checked the wreckage with a thermal imaging camera, to ensure hot spots could be damped down.

"Following an investigation, the cause of the fire was deemed as deliberate, and duty of care was left with the police."

Previously, travellers have been known to set up camps in Kennard Moor Drove.

It is not known if the caravan was part of one of these communities.

Anyone with information regarding the incident should contact police on 101.
