Location: INDUSTRIAL UNIT - FRIARS WALK, WORTHING
Incident: Fire - Firefighters are still at the scene of a fire in Friars Walk, Worthing. The fire is under control and has been mostly contained to one industrial unit. At its height 6 fire engines and an Ariel Ladder Platform were at the scene. The premises were being used as a vehicle recovery business and the fire involves at least one recovery truck, tyres, diesel and welding equipment including acetylene cylinders.
Due to the dangers from acetylene a 200m cordon has been set up and Police are evacuating approximately 250 homes in the area. Worthing Borough Council has opened a temporary rest centre at the Durrington Leisure Centre in Shaftesbury Ave for people being evacuated. Some people will go to the rest centre; some will make their own arrangements with friends and relatives. Coaches are being provided by West Sussex County Council to transport those that need it.
The railway line has been closed. Train services are still operating as alternative transport is being provided for passengers. The cordon will be in place until at least 5pm today when it will be reassessed. It could remain in place for up to 24hrs. The cause of the fire is unknown, but it is not thought to be linked to the recent series of arson attacks in the Tarring area of Worthing.
Incident report: Fire - single storey building 45mx50m consisting of 3 industrial units - fire in 1 unit used as car valeting and general engineering workshop - 100% of contents damaged by fire - 50% of roof damaged by fire - level of damage in adjacent units not confirmed at this time - 2HRS, 4 Fixed HRS, 1 foam HR, 1 HR used via ALP, 6BA used by F&RS - 2 large acetylene cylinders cooled using fixed hose reels - thermal imaging camera used to inspect cylinders - incident under investigation -
