A car blaze near the Cabinet Office was tackled by firefighters yesterday.

The fire severely damaged a Daihatsu Sirion owned by Cal’s Quality Driving School.

The incident happened on Court Street opposite the Premier’s office.

A spokesman for the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service said they received a call just after 4pm about a vehicle fire near the intersection of Reid Street and Court Street.

He said: “When they arrived, firefighters noticed a car fully involved in fire.

“The blaze was quickly brought under control and the incident is under investigation.”
