Vehicle fires



Request detail: 

I would like to request under the Freedom of Information Act data held by Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service on vehicle fires attended by your emergency crews for the financial years 2017-18 to 2022-23 inclusive.

The information I am seeking relates directly to vehicles which have caught fire either while parked or while in use. An example would be a car which catches fire while parked outside a house or a car which catches fire while driving along the road.

I am not looking for information on vehicles which have been deliberately set alight or that have caught fire after being involved in a road traffic collision.

I would like information held by Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service broken down into the following categories:

Type/Class of vehicle (such as Car/SUV/MPV/Van/HGV)

Make: (Such as Ford/Vauxhall/Mercedes/LandRover)

Model: (Such as Mondeo/Corsa/E-Class/Discovery)

Fuel: (Such as Petrol/Diesel/LPG/Hydrogen/Hybrid/Electric)

I would also like information as to whether the vehicle fire caused any casualties / fatalities or caused damage to other vehicles / buildings.

Response detail: 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. Please find attached the information requested where this data has been recorded in our Incident Recording System. Please note Shropshrie Fire and Rescue Service do not record the type/class of vehicle nor the fuel type, and limited detail about the extent of the fire.
