BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) - Bluffton Township Fire Department and Beaufort County EMS responded to a report of a vehicle fire at the entrance to Westbury Park.

When units arrived, a 4-door Jeep was in flames in the Westbury yard debris dumping area. Fire crews used foam to put out the massive blaze that grew due to the fuel tank rupturing and leaking onto the yard debris pile nearby. A water supply was later established to control hot spots.

Traffic entering Westbury Park was blocked for approximately one hour. 

The fire is under investigation by the Bluffton Township Fire District Fire Marshal's office.
