Fire on Meadow Close

Home » Newsroom » Fire on Meadow Close

The Fire Brigade was called to Meadow Close yesterday afternoon (Thursday, 6th February )after the hedge outside a property caught fire. Contractors were resealing the pathway after new gas pipes had been laid when the accident occurred. The hedge to the property was destroyed and damage also occurred to an adjacent, wooden garden building and a parked car. Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident.

Sue Hardacre, Vice-Chair of the Community Centre Committee of Management said " Work was being carried out as part of the project to replace the oil boilers with new gas fired ones. We are concerned that our neighbour' property has been damaged and hope that negotiations between the Council Property Services, the contractors and the householders will be quickly settled to the satisfaction of all concerned."

Access to the Community Centre and the Professional Centre have not been affected.
