Property Fire

Chapel Street, Penzance at 03/12/2018 23:22


At 23:22 on 03/12/18 the Critical Control Centre received an emergency call informing them of a fire.

Two appliances from Penzance Community Fire Station, supported by a wholetime officer, attended and on arrival discovered a wheelie bin in front of the property's doors well alight.

Firefighters used breathing apparatus and a hosereel jet to extinguish the blaze. Once extinguished, crews remained on scene for a while to monitor hot spots. The incident is believed to be Arson and has since been handed over to Devon and Cornwall Police.

See provided link on details of how to protect yourself from Arson.
