Crews from Haslemere, Liphook, Guildford, Chertsey and Bognor were called to the home on Saturday 19th March to assist with this major incident.
While the emergency crews were at work the local Plymouth Brethren Rapid Relief Team set up to provided refreshments to the crews which was a welcome relief in the rain and freezing conditions.

All members of the emergency services expressed thankfulness with one fireman saying “you guys do such a great job! I hope you are able to come next time we are called out.”
