A witness told The Falkirk Herald they heard an “explosion” prior to seeing smoke coming from the vehicle.

A spokesman for the emergency service said: “Operations Control mobilised one fire appliance to the scene where crews extinguished the flames.

“Crews left after ensuring the area was made safe and no injuries were reported.”
