Firefighters tackle third fire this week in Banbury

Firefighters with the Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service tackled the third fire this week in Banbury last night, Thursday December 3.

According to a Facebook post by the Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue and Service, Crews from Deddington Fire Station worked last night, Thursday December 3, to deal with a fire that spread from one being dealt with by other crews from Banbury on different roads backing up to each other.

The fire on station approach involved caravans and spread through fencing and shrubbery to affect the other side on Haslemere way.

Using jets, hose reels and ladders the crew were able to prevent further spread to this side and support their colleagues extinguishing the main fire.
