This morning one of Oxford Direct Services' commercial refuse and recycling vehicles suffered a fire in the cab whilst at Sainsbury's on Heyford Hill.

The crew quickly responded by calling Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service who were on the scene within 10 minutes and quickly extinguished the fire. 

No one was hurt in the incident and refuse and recycling services were not affected. The vehicle was damaged and is being recovered. The cause of the fire will now be investigated.
