A car has exploded in flames.

Hertfordshire County Council were called at 3.30pm today with reports of one car “well alight” in Langley Hill, Kings Langley.

A fire crew from Watford were called to the blaze and discovered a blue Volvo on fire. They used a hose reel and dry powder to extinguish the flames.

The cause of the fire was “accidental” and no injuries were reported.

The car fire was under control by 4pm.
