We received several calls reporting a hedge on fire that was spreading to a boat. Two fire engines were initially sent and on arrival they confirmed that this fire was now spreading from the boat to a property and requested further assistance of another 2 fire engines.
This fire initially started in the front garden of a domestic property but spread to 5 vehicles including 2 cars, a speedboat, jet ski and motorbike, and also externally to the house. The fire was extinguished using:
- 6 Breathing Apparatus
- 2 Hose Reel Jets
- 1 Main Jet
- Thermal Image Camera
Four of the vehicles were 100 per cent damaged by fire and 1 car had minor heat and smoke damage. The house was damaged 60 per cent by fire and 40 per cent by smoke. There was also minor heat damage to a neighbouring property. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
