Rob Cole, Incident Commander, stated:

“In hot conditions, our teams worked incredibly hard to aggressively fight the fire and prevent it from spreading to the adjoining premises.”

We worked closely with our Hampshire Constabulary colleagues who closed off the surrounding roads throughout the incident.

“I’d like to thank the local businesses that provided refreshments to our crews during the incident on a humid evening.”
