“Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels to extinguish the car fire, which had spread to affect outdoor electrical structures including a drive-through menu board. Firefighters also isolated the electrics and gave advice to the manager on site.

“The incident was dealt with by 4.35pm.

“The cause of the fire was accidental, by electrical.”

KFC contacted the Peterborough Telegraph this morning to assure customers it would be business as usual today and nobody was injured in the blaze.
