Crews Tackle Large March Fire

    Firefighters have tackled a blaze at a house in March.

    More than forty firefighters, including crews from March, Chatteris, Wisbech, Ramsey, Dogsthorpe, Huntingdon, St Neots and Cambridge attended the scene in Church Street after being alerted just after 9am on Sunday,

    Firefighters arrived to find a well-developed fire involving a shed, which contained cylinders that was spreading to nearby houses. Crews worked hard to contain the fire to stop it from spreading to further properties while also ensuring the cylinders were cooled and removed from the area.

    Residents in the immediate area were evacuated from their homes as a precaution and road closures put in place.

    By 4.45pm the fire had been fully extinguished. 

    An investigation into the cause of the fire will beging once the structure of the building has been confirmed as safe to enter.
