Fire crews fight blaze at Hampton Football Club

Solihull Editorial 1st Aug, 2023   0

FIREFIGHTERS have tackled a blaze at Hampton Football Club in Solihull.

West Midlands Fire Service (WMFS) said they were called shortly after 5.05am on Tuesday morning (August 1) to Field Lane.

The service sent five fire engines and a 4×4 Brigade Response Vehicle with crews from Solihull, Sheldon, Bickenhill, Hay Mills, Highgate and Ward End.

A spokesperson for WMFS said: “This was a fire affecting the bar area in a single-storey building.

“A ground floor cellar and a pitched roof insulated with straw and wooden panelling were 100 per cent damaged by fire in this area.

“Crews worked in the first instance to confine the fire to this area to prevent significant fire spread to the nearby changing room facilities.”

Firefighters removed fascias and roof panels to gain access to the roof space, which showed signs of collapse due to fire damage.

A partial closure of Lugtrout Lane from Field Lane to Hampton Lane was implemented whilst crews worked to bring this incident to a close.

These roads have now reopened.

A fire engine remained to aid with damping down, whilst firefighters continue to remove debris from the affected building.
