    Ouch hope nobody was hurt, everything else is replaceable

  4. legalgal says:

    Wow those things are highly flammable. Fuel?
    Glad it hasn’t affected neighboring moored boats.

  5. George says:

    I’m interested as to why the fire engine access was blocked right at the top of the hill. I’m guessing there is an explanation but from what I can see the road was blocked by a number of vehicles early in the process and it took an age for control to be on scene as a result.

    • Pisces Girl says:

      The fire truck was NOT blocked by cars but could NOT get down to the waterside because of a house pillar.

    • Jus' Wonderin' says:

      Don’t think the firetruck was able to get through unfortunately…

    @ Have some backbone.

    Where the heck do you come up with these lines anyway.

  7. Nope says:

    Nope. First 2 trucks at the bottom of the hill were fire trucks. (1 truck and 1 smaller vehicle) After that was 2 vehicles of people who were assisting. It’s a narrow road and hill. Plenty of people came for a drive up and rubber neck though.

    • George says:

      Ok so why were they running a hose from a fire truck at the top of the hill, I saw them laying it down the hill and it took an age for them to get going and fight the fire. There was definitely an issue with access.
