Incident - Property Fire

Date: 07/01/2019
Time: 19:50
Location: King Street, Plymouth
Area: Western
County: Devon

Fire appliances from Greenbank, Camels Head and the aerial ladder platform from Crownhill were mobilised to a youth centre with a fire in a light fitting in the main hall. Crews arrived on scene and got to work with a triple extension ladder and CO2 extinguisher in an attempt to put the fire out. Due to the location of the light fitting, crews requested an access platform, based in Exeter to be sent to the incident. When this arrived, crews were able to inspect the light fitting properly, as it was 20ft up in the hall.

Crews used a CO2 extinguisher, a ladder, 2 thermal imaging cameras, a snake eye camera and the access tower at the incident. The cause was accidental.
