Thatch fire – New Line, Norden, Dorset

Date: 20th April, 2019

Time: 20:40

Description: At 20:40 Fire Control received several calls to a fire involving a thatched property at New Line, Morden near Wareham. Initial crews mobilised included crews from Wareham, Swanage, Poole x2, Westbourne, Redhill Park plus a high rise from Westbourne, an Incident Support Unit from Poole, a Water Carrier from Poole Fire Station and several officers required to carry out various roles. Sandbanks Ferry were also integral with this incident by assisting with transporting several crews from the conurbation area across to the Purbeck area. On arrival the first crew from Wareham Fire Station found the roof of the thatched property to be well alight. As the incident progressed further appliances were subsequently requested which attended from Wimborne x2, Sturminster Newton, Blandford and Springbourne Fire Stations. To extinguish the fire a fire break was established in the roof and crews proceeded to strip away the thatch. The fire was extinguished using 2 main lines, 6 hose reel jets and a compressed air foam hose, and was under control by 22:43 hrs. Crews also salvaged property from inside the premises for the occupier. The Red Cross also assisted with this incident by sending their Fire Emergency Support vehicle to provide help and assistance for the occupiers. Crews have now left the scene, however will be going back to reinspect again in the morning
