The Shonk can report from the scene that at about 3:50pm a Peugeot auto-mobile caught ablaze on Rich Way in Brecon adjacent to the Aldi supermarket.
Emergency services arrived quickly on the scene, police made the area safe and closed the road to vehicles whilst fire fighters attended the engine fire. No other vehicles were involved and it seems that the driver of the vehicle was able to pull over safely and vacate the vehicle before harm was caused.
The fire engine has now left the scene and the vehicle will likely be collected and removed.
The scene caught the attention of a sizeable crowd, curious as to how the fire might have started. The fire appeared to have originated from the engine bay which may suggest a mechanical or electrical fault.
