Time: 07:19:00

Address: Stricklands Lane, Preesall

Incident Number: 1803002880

Two fire engines from Preesall and Bispham attended a gas leak in Stalmine following a road traffic collision on Stricklands Lane at 7:19. The car had crashed through a hedge and ruptured the gas main resulting in gas leaking under pressure. Firefighters put up a 50 metre cordon which meant five properties were evacuated and the road was closed. Engineers from Cadent Gas worked with firefighters to isolate the gas and by 10:00 firefighters were beginning to leave the incident ground.
