Firefighters had to rush to an emergency at a Morrisons petrol station when a blaze broke out on a coach on the forecourt.

They found the coach “well alight” when they responded to reports of the blaze at the East Yorkshire petrol station.

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service was called to Morrisons’ forecourt, in Bessingby Way, Bridlington, at 6.14pm on Wednesday March 12.

A brigade spokesman said: “Two crews from Bridlington Fire Station quickly extinguished the fire in the engine of the coach.

“The location of the incident presented obvious dangers, but the safety procedures of the filling station staff and quick work of the fire crews prevented the situation escalating.

“We were on the scene by 6.18pm and the engine compartment of the 44-seat coach was well alight.

“Only the driver was on the coach at the time of the fire. All petrol pumps were quickly isolated.”

He added crews spent around an hour at the scene, ensuring the fire had been fully put out.

There were no reports of any injuries.

A Morrisons spokesman said that because the fire brigade had responded so quickly there had been no damage to the forecourt and it was able to reopen within two hours.
