UK Central Response

Flat Fire

UK Flat fire Incident (Stood down)


Leicestershire Fire and Rescue requested BRC support at 16:50 on 24/01/24 to provide emotional and practical support at a rest centre for residents of a Kelbrook Close flat block fire, at a nearby Church. 9 properties, with around 30-40 residents, have been evacuated to the rest centres, with adults children and pets all being impacts.

It was initially believed that the rest centre would potentially remain open overnight and CRCC had been paging out for volunteer availability to respond and support the local authority at the rest centre. However, this is no longer needed and those addition volunteers have been stood down.
