E Scooter Fire

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service have been called to a garage fire in Peacehaven.

Firefighters from Newhaven and Roedean were called out at 22:11 on 29th May 2023 to reports of a fire.

Crews used four breathing apparatus, one hose reel jet, firefighting foam and one short extension ladder to fight the fire.

There are no reports of casualties.

The cause of the incident is thought to be two electric scooters left on charge.

A home safety visit was completed by crews.

Station Manager Darran Sampson said: the fire was caused by two E-scooters left on charge overnight in the garage. The garage was completely destroyed, and the fire nearly spread to house, lucky the scooters were not left indoors.
