Disused building fire - Wisbech - Fenland

A crew from Wisbech and five from Norfolk were called to a fire at a disused building in Old Lynn Road.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used an aerial appliance to extinguish the fire using three jets, one hose reel and some foam to smother the flames.

The 20 metre by 15 metre corrigated metal building was a former Auto Centre.

Station Commander Mick Jackman, from Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: "There was a small amount of old office furniture inside the building but there was a lot of tyre and rubbish in an adjoining side garage. Our priority was to stop the fire from spreading to a neighbouring residential property."

Firefighters returned to their stations by 1.06am, and a crew from Wisbech returned to reinspect the site this morning.

Cause of the fire was deliberate.

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
