Roof fire - Guyhirn - Fenland

Crews from Wisbech and March were called to a roof fire in High Road after roof felting work overheated the timbers inside the roof and caused a smouldering fire.

Firefighters cut into the timbers to prevent the fire from developing and returned to their stations buy 4.49pm.

Watch Commander Phil Pilbeam said: “There’s a safety message there to be aware of the potential for fires for tradespeople or anyone doing DIY.”
