Description: Norden - At 20:40 fire control received a call reporting that a property with a thatched roof was on fire. Crews from Wareham, Swanage, Poole (2 pumps, water carrier and Incident Support Unit), Westbourne, Redhill Park, Wimborne and Sturminster Newton were immediately mobilised along with four officers. On arrival crews confirmed the roof of the property to be well alight and crews got to work creating a fire break and commencing salvage operations. Further resources were then requested and crews from Blandford, Springbourne and a 2nd crew from Wimborne were mobilised. The Red Cross also attended the incident to provide support to the occupants of the property. The stop message was received at 22:43 and confirmed the fire was extinguished using 6 hose reel jets, 2 main lines, and 1 CAFS jet. All resources have now cleared from the scene and a crew from Wareham will re-attend at 0900 21/04/19 to reinspect the property.
