Building fire - Coates - Fenland

Crews from Stanground, March, Thorney and Dogsthorpe, along with a water carrier from Ramsey, were called to a workshop on fire in Cross Drove.

Firefighters used three light portable pumps, three monitors, two jets and three hose reels to fight the fire in a workshop, 20 metres by 20 metres.

Station Commander Jamie Johnson said the workshop was very close to a large detached house next door.

“It was a significant fire and had it not been for some seriously good work from the fire crews the property next door could potentially have been lost.”

Cause of the fire was accidental.
