Fire at breakers yard near Sittingbourne

Posted: 19/08/2008 19:17:00

More than 40 firefighters have been tackling a blaze at a breakers yard at Bobbing near Sittingbourne.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called at 4.33pm to reports that a shed was alight. Eight appliances were sent to Sheppey Way where they found a building containing 200 tyres and engine parts was also alight.

Crews had to temporarily withdraw from the scene after a small supply of domestic fireworks in the shed started to explode but no-one was hurt and the incident was quickly brought under control with the fire being extinguished by 5.51pm.

Station Manager Daren Jenner led the incident response. He said: “The safety of our crews is paramount so we withdrew for about 10 minutes until the threat of fireworks and some cyclinders in the shed was over.
“When we re-started operations, the firefighters worked extremely hard to make sure this potentially dangerous incident was under control very quickly and they prevented it from spreading to a nearby corn field.”

The building – which measures 15 metres by 30 metres – was severely damaged and the shed and some fencing were completely destroyed. The cause of the blaze will now be investigated.
