Fire in bin store of four-storey block of flats

North Second Street, Central Milton Keynes

Two appliances and crews from West Ashland and one from Broughton attended, along with an officer.

A bin storage cupboard, below a block of flats, was well alight when they arrived. The flats were evacuated.

The firefighters used:

  • Two main jets
  • One hose reel
  • A short extension ladder
  • Small gear
  • A thermal imaging camera
  • A positive pressure ventilation fan

The fire spread to affect an underground parking area. Two cars suffered fire damage.

A first-floor flat, directly above the fire, suffered smoke logging and the firefighters used positive pressure ventilation to clear the smoke.

Thames Valley Police were notified of the incident.
