Witham: Car blaze drama in Hatfield Peverel
1:00pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in News
A kickboxer has described how she watched in fear as flames spread from a burning car towards her home.
Jolie Boyle, 36, was woken at about 4.30am on Saturday to discover a silver Jaguar was on fire at the bottom of her drive in Maldon Road, Hatfield Peverel.
The Ipswich driver of the Jaguar, who was travelling to Stansted Airport, had pulled over after hearing a pop from the engine and smelling smoke.
After stopping near the Duke of Wellington pub the diesel car went up flames, which spread to Miss Boyle’s Daihatsu Terios on her drive.
The martial arts champion, whose parents were staying with her, was alerted to the fire by their dogs.
She said: “It was the most bizarre thing having a fire right on the driveway and we couldn’t get away, we were just stuck here."
