Downham Market Firestation

11th March 2014

Today I took a trip to visiDownham Firet Downham Market after the terrible news that the towns fire station had burnt down over night.  The irony is there for sure but there is nothing funny about this nor the cost to replace the building and the fire truck which was housed inside.  I'm lucky enough to have never experienced a fire in a building as I hope you are too, so the smell some 6 or 7 hours later was quite haunting.  I could also feel the sense shock from not only members of the fire service but the police too who are stationed next to what was a relatively new building.

Eight crews from Norfolk attended the blaze in which there were no casualties.
