Derelict building fire in Blackpool

Date: 01/12/2020

Time: 14:21:00

Address: King Edward Avenue/Queens Promenade, Blackpool

Incident Number: 2012000177

Eight fire engines and an aerial ladder platform from Blackpool, South Shore, Bispham, Fleetwood, St Anne’s, Lytham and Preesall attended a fire in a derelict building on Queens Promenade in Blackpool. Firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus used four hose reels, a thermal imagining camera and triple extension ladder to bring the fire on the second floor of the building under control. They were assisted by a Lancashire Police drone. The incident has now been reduced to four pumps as crews continue searching the building and damping down, checking for any remaining hot spots or fire spread. The promenade is closed between Gynn Square and Empress Drive.
