Lorries Damaged In Industrial Unit Fire
Four lorries were damaged as more than 30 Hampshire firefighters tackled a fire at an industrial unit near Havant on the evening of 6th October 2012.
Crews were called to Larchwood Avenue in Bedhampton, at 1843 hours and arrived to find a well-developed fire in a single-storey unit.
Though gas cylinders were reported at the premises, crews established they were not involved in the fire and they were removed from the scene by firefighters.
Two of the lorries involved in the blaze were severely damaged by the fire, while the other two were badly damaged by smoke.
An investigation into the cause of the blaze is continuing.
Station Manager Dave Graham said:
"Once acetylene cylinders were reported we quickly entered the premises and were able to remove them safely.
"We worked closely with our colleagues in the police, who assisted us with traffic management in the surrounding area."
Control room operators fielded more than 30 999 calls from the public due to the location being near to the A3(M) and an Asda supermarket.
Firefighters were called in from Cosham, Havant, St Mary's, Southsea, Portchester, Eastleigh and Fareham.
