Premises Fire – West Stour

Date: 5th February, 2020

Time: 4.44pm

Description: At 16:44 hours Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service received the first of several reports that there was a building alight on Shaftesbury Road, West Stour. Initially mobilised were one pump from Gillingham, two pumps from Shaftesbury, a pump from Sherborne and an aerial appliance and supporting pump from Yeovil. Due to the number of calls being received to the incident, a fifth pump was mobilised which was the second pump from Sherborne. Once the first crew booked in attendance they found the building to be fully involved in fire and so requested the attendance of a water carrier which also came from Yeovil. Several officers also attended to undertake the various operational roles required for an incident of this nature. An incident command support unit was requested to attend from Sherborne with a supporting appliance from Warminster. Two main lines, compressed air foam and the aerial appliance were used to deal with the incident where unfortunately 30% of the building was destroyed by fire. The electricity board was requested to attend to ensure all electrics to the building were isolated, Police and Ambulance also stood by. At 2100 hours the incident was reduced to two pumping appliance relief crews which attended from Mere and Sturminster Newton.  The crews continued dampening down hot spots using a short extension ladder and two hose reel jets. At 2317 hours the incident was handed over to a responsible person and all appliances had left the scene by 0000 hours.
