New Forest crews tackle shipping container blaze
Description of Incident
New Forest firefighters had an early wake-up call to tackle a shipping container blaze near Ringwood.
Crews from Ringwood, Burley, Redbridge, St Mary’s, Fordingbridge and Lyndhurst were joined by specialist support vehicles at the scene on Green Lane in Upper Kingston at 00:57 this morning.
The fire involving two shipping containers and a building used as a car workshop also had cylinders inside which were cooled by firefighters.
