Gas explosion update

Posted: 10/10/2007 11:55:58

Four fire engines and a height vehicle are still in Folkestone this morning following last night's gas explosion.

Crews are continuing to cool the building in Radnor Cliff, Sandgate and check for hotspots. They will assist the local council's building control officer during an inspection later this morning.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called at 11.42pm following reports of an explosion in the mid-terraced property. A small fire broke out and spread to a neighbouring property.

Control room operators initially sent two appliances, both from Folkestone, to the four storey building. A further two appliances from Folkestone and Hythe and a height vehicle were then also been sent to the scene.
Firefighters are expected to remain at the scene until around midday.
