Two fire engines from Warrington and one from Wilmslow

Crews were called to the M56 motorway east bound to deal with a vehicle on fire on the hard shoulder which was well alight.  One breathing apparatus wearer used one hose reel to extinguish the fire and the Highways agency closed one lane of the motorway as crews spent time damping down the area.
