900 CARS DESTROYED IN MOTORHOG FIRE

A large used car lot, mainly selling insurance category S and N write-offs has been destroyed by fire.

South Yorkshire Fire Service initially underestimated the size of the incident, as it was thought to only be about 30 cars. However, when the scale became apparent, some 40 firefighters were on site to tackle the blaze, and it was not until 1pm on Saturday afternoon that the fire was reported to be out.

No injuries were reported.

Car salvage firms Motorhog, Car Transplants, DH Systems and FAB came together in 2019 to form Synetiq, which lists the Motorhog site as it’s registered office.
