Fire Badly Damages Family Home
Two people have been treated for breathing in smoke after a fire at a house in Fordingbridge.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service was called at about 4am on Thursday 30th June - after reports of a fire in Tinkers Cross.
Control operators mobilised fire appliances from Fordingbridge, Ringwood, Burley and Lyndhurst along with the special equipment unit from St Marys and the multi-role vehicle from Eastleigh. One fire appliance with CAFS (Compressed Air Foam System) from Winchester was also mobilised to the scene.
The roof and first floor was badly damaged, but crews attempted to salvage contents from the property.
Two casualties were treated on scene for smoke inhalation.
Officer in charge Kevin Evenett said: "On arrival, the initial crews were faced with a very difficult fire in a large older building with several different roof structures. The first crews on scene with their early intervention meant that this fire was quickly brought under control. As this incident was in a remote location with scarce water supply crews used a swimming pool as a water supply. This would have no doubt been much more damage had it not been for everyone’s hard work".
An investigation will be carried out to find the cause of the fire.
The busy road's being made two lanes in both directions between Segensworth and Titchfield - it's due to take 18 months.
