ADVICE TO NEIGHBOURS IN AREA OF WESTWOOD FIRE
As you know Kent Fire and Rescue firefighters have been dealing with a large fire in an industrial unit in Enterprise Way, Westwood, Margate since Saturday morning.
Originally fourteen fire engines along with specialist equipment were dealing with the fire. They worked overnight, and by Sunday they had surrounded the fire and had five crews at the scene. They are removing the tightly packed bales from inside the premises so they can soak them to ensure the fire is completely brought under control.
There will continue to be smoke in the area and residents are advised to keep doors and windows closed.
We appreciate that road closures and emergency service vehicles moving around, will have caused some disruption in the area and we want to thank the public for their patience and appreciation for the work of the firefighters during this incident.
