Six appliances deal with severe fire in Tackley
“Significant fire” involves two linked buildings, a car and gas supply
Six fire appliances attended what fire officials are calling a “significant fire” in Tackley yesterday (Monday 14th December). The blaze involved two linked buildings.
A crew from Kidlington Fire Station arrived to find a severe fire spreading between two buildings. A car, the gas supply to the property and other items were also involved.
The occupants had been able to escape from the property when the fire was discovered. They were unharmed and supported by neighbours.
A call to the emergency services was initially made just after 11am. Crews worked in heavy smoke and significant heat to prevent the fire spreading to the two main properties, tackling it both inside and outside. Seven breathing apparatus teams were used during the incident to bring it under control.
At the height of the fire six appliances attended from Kidlington, Rewley Road Oxford, Bicester, Eynsham and Deddington along with a command unit from Woodstock and support unit from Eynsham. Further relief crews attended in the evening came from Slade Park, Banbury and Bicester.
Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue worked with Southern Gas Networks and Scottish and Southern Energy to make the area safe. They remained on scene until late yesterday evening.
The cause of the fire is under investigation but not thought to be suspicious.
