Roof fire in commercial unit

Bourton Road, Buckingham

At the height of the fire seven appliances and crews were in attendance, from:

  • Buckingham
  • West Ashlands
  • Broughton
  • Winslow
  • Brackley, Northamptonshire
  • Wheatley

Two officers also attended.

The fire was affecting the roof of a single-storey building used as a commercial unit, approximately 30m by 6m.

The firefighters used six sets of breathing apparatus, four hose reel jets, two main jets, a turn table ladder and a water carrier. They also used a 13.5 metre ladder to establish fire breaks in the roof space.

The electricity provider attended to isolate the supply to overhead cables, and crew from Buckingham and West Ashland undertook reinspection’s overnight and the following morning. They used a short extension ladder, one hose reel jet and a thermal imaging camera to tackle hotspots.
