Second fire at stables where tragedy struck earlier this year


FIREFIGHTERS have this evening tackled a fire at a stable block in Stanford-le-Hope – a repeat of an incident early this year in which a number of horses died. In this instance, no animals have been affected.

The first blaze took place at the stables on Stanford Road in April and crews were called to the site once more this evening (Sunday, 30 August).

Firefighters were called to reports of a fire involving a stable building in Stanford-Le-Hope this evening.
