Fast action on Warminster shop blaze
3:00pm Sunday 18th August 2013 in Latest News
Investigations are continuing into what caused a fire at a secondhand shop in Silver Street, Warminster, at 9.48am on Monday.
The fire started in the corridor at the back of The Wonga Shop, which opened last November. Two engines from Warminster tackled it.
Warminster Fire Station manager Chris Trimby said: “It was obvious that the ground floor of the building was heavily smoke logged, but we didn’t know the location of the fire or the cause.
“The flat above was empty, so I sent two of my guys in with breathing apparatus and a thermal imaging camera to see what they could find.
“The fire was located and quickly put out in 10 to 15 minutes.”
