A property with a market value of over a million pounds has been saved from total reigns after quick actions by fire fighter from Surrey Fire and Rescue Service. Fire Fighters entered the property and led the owners to safety and attempted to fight the fire internally.
At the height of the fire that started in the roof over sixty fire fighters were sent to the scene along with two water carriers and an aerial ladder platform.
The owners of property praised fire crews for the efforts in stopping the blaze from spreading to other parts of the Scandinavia wooden property.
The roof has been damaged by 40% and part of the second floor has been damaged. One of the first Fire Crews to attend entered the property wearing breathing described the fire a fully-developed fire. Are efforts were hindered due to the construction of the property internally there was no loft so we has to keep cutting away to stop the blaze from spreading. There was quite a lot smoke and we could see flames coming out of the roof when we first arrived. Firefighters believe the blaze started as a result of a wood burner but the cause is still under investigation.
Six fire fighters in breathing apparatus entered the Green road address, and six hose reels and two ventilation units were in use.
The incident commander in charge of the incident said: “Because the fire spread to the roof space, we requested an aerial ladder platform to attend. Water was an other issue due to the location of property that was off the beaten track. We had to use extension ladders to tackle the fire and roof ladders because the aerial ladder couldn’t fit down the drive way ”
