A Well Done for the Fire Service

I would just like to congratulate the Fire Service for their prompt response to a motor home fire in Landport yesterday evening. Great job ensuring the fire did not spread to the boys club.(Heaven knows there are few enough community facilities). It, does however, pose the question why did LDC let the chap stay living, no doubt rent free! on the hard standing for so long. Last time I checked it was not designated a nominated site for travellers.

I didn't realise that the Fire Service would need congratulations given for every small fire they attended. I'm glad that it didn't spread to Boy's Club
LDC probably "let the chap stay living, no doubt rent free! on the hard standing for so long" because probably no one could be bothered to say anything about it until 'A Local' did. If anyone was concerned enough surely they would of said something sooner?

Saw that van about 6 months ago and thought it was on fire - there was an awful lot of smoke coming out, but then someone opened the door and all seemed ok. I think they had some sort of dodgy stove/chimney rigged up for heating/cooking.

Have the fire service said what started the fire?
It would be of no surprise to learn if it was arson judging from some peoples comments on this site.

Surely you can't blame the Arsenal manager for this incident.

The guy who lived in that van is one of the nicest blokes I know. His home and most of his possessions have been destroyed. It's tragic

I don't know him but its nice to hear somebody having a little empathy.
I knew a young couple the woman was 8.6 months pregnant and their live in vehicle went up in smoke leaving them with absolutely nothing.
I remember the local bands had several benefit gigs to raise funds for them.
I agree with you Dave it tragic.
