Update- Leicester Villas, Hove

Date : 10 December 2019

At 02:55, we were called to a fire at a residential property on Leicester Villas, Hove.  8 appliances from Brighton, Hove, Roedean, Lewes, Barcombe, Newhaven and West Sussex attended the incident.

Crews rescued 4 people from the property and they were handed over in to the care of SECAMB.  Crews used six Breathing Apparatus, one Hose Reel Jet, two Main Jets and 1 in 7 foam to extinguish the fire.

Crews have isolated gas and electrics to the property as a precaution.  Firefighters visited residents in the vicinity to offer both reassurance and Home Safety Visits.  

As of 08:30, we currently have two appliances on scene.  An Aerial Ladder Platform will be at the scene until Building Control can assess the building.  

We would like to thank both SECAMB and Sussex Police for their support during the incident.

The cause of the fire is not yet known and a Fire Investigation will take place in due course, once the building is deemed safe to enter.
