Re-inspection planned for buildings affected by Hastings fire

A re-inspection is planned for tomorrow morning following a serious fire in Hastings.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service was called at 00.34 on 25 May 2014 to an address on Marine Parade.

Around 40 firefighters tackled the fire at the height of the incident.

One woman was taken to hospital.

A number of buildings have been badly affected.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service has spent the day working alongside Hastings Borough Council and Sussex Police.

Fire crews have now left the scene, which has been secured, and a re-inspection will take place in the morning.

Work is being carried out by building experts to ensure structural stability before a fire investigation can begin.

It is not known whether the buildings were all fitted with smoke alarms but the Fire and Rescue Service is urging everyone to check they have working alarms in their homes and plan how they would escape in case of emergency.

More information about smoke alarms and escape routes can be found at www.esfrs.org/communitySafety/
