Returning from the New Forest spotted smoke in the distance which quickly became thicker and closer.
Soon we were at a standstill as the fire was so intense the road upfront was blocked by smoke and flames.
Very quickly Fire Engines x3 arrived Ambulances, Police and a backup water bowser
We sat unable to move on for an hour while the incident – a lorry on fire which had also caught some of the trees above it was dealt with by the authorities. They even distributed bottled water to people stuck in the incident on this baking hot day. One can only reflect what those poor people in Greece went through when caught up in the fires there.
Quite pleased with the pictures taken from a dash camera.
