Fire in portable building - March - Fenland

12 July 2010, 8.25pm

At 8.25pm last night (12), one crew from March was called to a fire in a portable building in a playing field on Estover Road in March.

Firefighters arrived to find a portable building, measuring about 10 metres by 20 metres.

They used one hose reel to extinguish the fire.

The cause of the fire was deliberate. 

Tony Raine, Station Manager at March said: "When people start deliberate fires like this they are putting themselves and others in danger. 

"Once a fire has been started it can spread very quickly and unpredictably. People who play with fire are putting their lives at risk as there is no guarantee they will be able to escape before it spreads."
