East Sussex firefighters tackle car fires and flooding


Firefighters from East Sussex were called out to several incidents last night (May 23) and in the early hours of this morning (May 24).

At 7.50pm last night, fire crews were called to Morrisons car park in Hastings, where a car was on fire. The crews made the car safe.

Then at 11.09pm a car outside Battle fire station was ablaze.

Firefighters used two hose reels and two breathing apparatus to tackle the fire.

The fire was accidental.

Then at 5.40am, a call came in from Ashford Road in Eastbourne, where a flat was ‘badly effected’ by flooding.

Crews made their way to the scene and isolated the electrics, and then notified the landlord.

The firefighters were also called out to bin fires, a person stuck in a lift, and even to a ring removal overnight.
