8:29pm Monday 4th November 2013 in News
FOUR fire engines from Chard, Crewkerne and Ilminster acted to extinguish a fire at Doncaster Aerospace, based at Beeching Close in Chard, earlier this evening.
Around 5.40pm two vehicles were sent out from Chard in response to reports of smoke at the aerospace manufacturers' premises.
Crews swiftly called for back-up however after confirming there was a fire in the extraction system.
A thermal imaging camera was among the apparatus used to put the fire out.
