FOUR fire crews are currently battling a caravan fire within a garage in Baughurst which has spread to surrounding properties. 

One man has been taken to hospital with minor burns and smoke inhalation.

Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service received reports of a fire at 3:20pm today (Tues) in Fairoak Way.

A spokesman for the Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "The fire was in a caravan which appears to have spread to two semi-detached houses but there is minimal damage to the loft space on one of them."

The latest update was received at 4:45pm and crews were still on the scene.

    The outcome could have been very different. Since 2010, 10,000 firefighters have been axed and a further 20% budget cuts are expected by 2020.

      But it wasn't . It was all sorted out, so try and think a bit more positive towards life rather than down everything !!

        You're right, I never thought to use a positive mental attitude to put out a fire. Also, it wasn't my house, so who cares . . . oh, perhaps it easier being a Tory.

          Once again you are wrong on who I voted for . Bravo to the fire brigade for doing their duty and saving peoples homes and ignore the sandal stamper who is more aggrieved to anything that is done and dream nirvana . You would be the first person to moan continually about massive tax hikes for the want of everything in the area' if' it ever happens. The fire brigade did a brilliant job and all you shout is cuts, cuts cuts. Give them a break and try and breath a bit easier than stomping and grumbling.

          maybe you should look at the cuts one of the fire appliances came from Rushmoor (Farnborough) 45 minutes away if another retained pump say kingsclere was on the run then they would be there quicker you might vote tory lets hope one day that you don't need the fire service but you cant because of the cuts lets get rid of the pen pushers in the council and not frontline emeregency service

          sorry beg to differ they are talking of removing kingsclere's fire appliance and replace it with a rapid response vehicle which is no more than a luton van like Tadley kingsclere covers the A339 and out to penwood yes lets have cuts lets get rid of half the pen pushers and not front line services and for your information if kingsclere's appliance was on the run then they wouldn't need to call a fire appliance in from Rushmoor (Farnborough ) about 45 minutes away

    In fact it was a shed fire that spread to the caravan and thence to the fences and houses. Thanks to the fire crews who saved our house first and then turned to the lesser possessions. And grateful thanks to all in Fair Oak Way for their prompt aid and support. Paul Wisken
