Appliances from seven fire stations called to Dersingham blaze
Norfolk fire crews were called to the boarded up Community Centre in Dersingham that in earlier years was a school (opposite the Feathers) on Wednesday evening about 9pm.
Many people will know the building as the venue for the youth club that was closed some years ago.
The Live Incident Feed from Norfolk Fire Service read: “Appliances from Sandringham, Kings Lynn North, Kings Lynn South, Heacham, Hunstanton, Massingham, Fakenham and the Aerial Ladder Platform from Kings Lynn North attended a commercial building fire on Manor Road.
“Crews wore breathing apparatus and used main jets and hose reel jets supplemented by a hydrant to extinguish the fire.
“A thermal imaging camera was used to check for hot spots.
“The stop message was received at 01:20.”
On Thursday 10th the King’s Lynn crew were back at the scene with the Aerial Ladder Platform damping down and photographer Ian Burt was there to record them at work.
Formerly owned by the Sandringham Estate plans for housing on the site have recently been withdrawn. Local residents have complained that the practically derelict building keeps getting broken into and the windows are broken.
