Building fire - Wisbech - Fenland

On Friday evening at around 6pm, our Combined Fire Control received calls for a building fire at MERKUR Cashino on Market Place, Wisbech.

Crews from Cambridgeshire, along with crews from Norfolk and Lincolnshire attended. In total eight crews, along with the incident command unit and turntable ladder (from Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service) responded.

The fire involved a three-story terraced property.

Crews arrived to find flames issuing from the building, which had started in the basement and had quickly spread to all three floors.

Firefighters worked hard to get the fire under control and contain the fire to the mid-terrace property and prevent it from spreading to neighbouring businesses.

The fire service remained in attendance with Police through the night.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
