Burgess Hill Household Waste Recycling Site Blaze

A recent fire at the Burgess Hill Household Waste Recycling Site is being treated as an accident.

Firefighters took around an hour and a half to put out the blaze which started at 8.15pm on August 4th but they stayed on site until around 3.30am to make sure the fire was fully extinguished.

The huge fire, which broke out in a corner of the 75 x 25 metre structure, took eleven fire crews to deal with it - Seven crews from West Sussex and one crew from East Sussex attended the inferno together with an aerial ladder platform, a water tender carrier and a command unit.

It's thought that the fire began amongst a pile of household refuse but the cause is as yet unknown.

50 per cent of the building was damaged by the fire, while the rest was damaged by smoke and heat.

An East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: "We would like to thank the residents of the surrounding area for their ongoing assistance and cooperation during this incident."
