AN electrical fault caused a parked car to catch fire.

Firefighters were called to a driveway on Ridgewood Drive, Sutton, shortly before 11.20pm on Monday (September 10).

The flames caused severe damage to the vehicle’s engine compartment and spread to an adjacent shed. Most of the shed and a back gate were left severely fire damaged.

Two crews from St Helens Community Fire Station attended the call-out.
