Firefighters from three different services united to tackle a recent fire that broke out in Louth, Lincolnshire.
The crews were called to the incident on the morning of last Tuesday, April 14. It took place at the GBM Waste Management warehouse located at the Fairfield Industrial Estate on Bolingbroke Road in Louth. Eye-witness reports stated that smoke and fire damage to the facility was visible.
Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue reported on social media that crews from nearby Skegness, Binbrook and Louth came together to battle the industrial blaze at the recycling centre.
To comply with government regulations for fire prevention, it is the responsibility of business owners to ensure they conduct a fire risk assessment to safeguard both their premises and any employees working on site. Such an assessment may require the installation of equipment for fire detection and prevention, including smoke and fire alarms.
Businesses in the industrial sector booking a fire alarm fitter in Chester, Louth and other places around the UK should always choose a qualified contractor. Fire alarm systems should be regularly tested by an electrician to make sure they are operating effectively.
A spokesperson for the fire services said that the fire resulted in damage to a large quantity of household waste.
The crews on site fought the flames with two main jets, two hose reel jets and a single oscillating ground monitor until the blaze was completely extinguished. The firefighters had left the scene of the fire by approximately 10:00 am.
