Scenes caught on the @TransurbanGroup cameras from inside the Burnley Tunnel earlier. Crews were called after a van’s engine ignited. The tunnel’s inbuilt deluge and smoke extraction systems combined with a quick response from our crews ensured the fire was under control quickly. pic.twitter.com/atHrk7fVNV
