Thousands Of Pheasants Die In Fire
Thousands of baby pheasants -maybe as many as 8000 - have died in a fire.
It happened around 1312 (Wednesday 1st June) at a Pheasantry in Lymore Lane, Lymore - just on the edge of The New Forest.
12 LPG gas cylinders were involved, some of which ignited and projected in excess of 40 metres through the air.
The fire was extinguished using two jets and one ground monitor. Fire appliances from Lymington and New Milton attended. In addition a water carrier from Lyndhurst and specialist vehicle using a Compressed Air Foam System from Andover were also used.
Group Manager Steve Quinn said:
"This is the second rural incident we have attended in two days that have involved portable gas cylinders which present serious risk in the community. Cylinders igniting can cause damage over a large area. Had the incident on Tuesday, involving Acetylene, been slightly closer to the motorway then we would have had to close it until the area was announced safe."
