Date: 15/05/2018

Time: 00:03:10

Address: Garstang Road South, Wesham

Incident Number: 1805005013

Four fire engines and crews from Wesham, South Shore, Blackpool and Lytham, together with an Aerial Ladder Platform and support pump and crews from Blackpool attended a ‘persons reported’ fire in a two-storey terraced property on Garstang Road South, Wesham. The fire was in an upstairs flat and created structural instability that prevented firefighters from entering to complete their searches. Colleagues from the Chorley/Bamber Bridge USAR teams have been called in to shore up the property and the incident response is at 8.45am still ongoing. The fire has been extinguished and confirmation whether anyone was in fact trapped in the fire is still awaited.
