Southampton tower block fire successfully suppressed by sprinklers

Hightown, St Mary’s, Redbridge, Hamble and Eastleigh crews were called to an oven fire on the 6th floor of Copenhagen Tower in Southampton.

The incident was treated as persons reported but soon after crews arrived they confirmed all persons were accounted for.

The sprinklers in the flat had activated and suppressed the fire which caused 10% fire damage and 100% water damage. Breathing apparatus, jets and tactical ventilation was used to fully extinguish the fire.

Crews undertook a salvage operation of the affected flat and community safety visits to neighbouring flats.

The stop message came in at 16:49.
