Fire's Out

I though I could smell burning plastic a little earlier and it soon became apparent that this was rather more serious than I thought, as two fire engines raced down Westgate Bay Avenue in Westgate and the road was closed off.

The second floor of one of the larger houses between Norman Road and Saxon Road was ablaze and the Fire Service moved swiftly to extinguish the flames. I'm told by a neighbour, that thankfully, nobody was home but some tropical fish and I expect to receive a report on these later.

As Westgate Bay Avenue is a main thoroughfare, there's congestion reaching back into Westbrook, with a small queue of buses and I don't yet know when the road will re-open, but I expect it to be around midday.
