Massive Farm Fire Near Camber


By Jim Hollands Friday 29 September 2017

Fire crews from Rye and others including  Hastings, Battle and Ashford are fighting a multi-building farm fire just outside Camber on the Lydd Road.

Police and ambulance attendance, but as far as we can ascertain there were no injuries.  Around ten fire appliances are at the blaze, including a Ladder Platform and around fifty firefighters,. Police are running traffic control but the road has not been closed.

The farm house is completely gutted and at least two other separate farm buildings seemed to have been engulfed.

I was told that there were so many emergency vehicles because of reports of gas cylinders and oil tanks likely to be stored there. Explosions were reported before the fire service arrived.

A 999 call at around 10.30 am. reported a roof ablaze.
