Lion blaze drama

Wardens armed with high velocity rifles protected firefighters when a car caught fire in the lion enclosure at Lord Bath's Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire. Visitors Craig Gordon and Michelle Sanders, of Southampton, were pulled from their vehicle as the wardens kept 12 lions at bay. Keepers received special training after a similar situation involving another terrified family in the big cats' enclosure last year.
