Two men suffer severe burns after Hamble van fire

Two men believed to be in their 20s had to be taken to hospital after suffering severe burns from a van fire in Hamble, Southampton.

Fire crews from Hamble, Hightown and St Mary's were called to Westfield Common just before 7.15pm on Sunday (13 May).

The two men were taken to hospital by road and air ambulance after being rescued from the fire.

Firefighters used breathing apparatus and hoses to extinguish the flames, and the van was severely damaged by the fire.

One car was also damaged by the heat of the flames. 

Firefighters believe it was caused by a leak from a gas cooking cylinder in the back of the van.
