A CAR caught fire in the early hours of the morning.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service was called to Northwich earlier today following reports of a vehicle on fire.

One engine from the Northwich station arrived at Forster Avenue at around 3.11am.

Upon arrival the crew found a car "well alight" on the driveway of a property.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to extinguish the flames.

A thermal imaging camera was then used to check for hot spots.
