Fire crews tackle suspected deliberate blaze at Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Activity Centre in Bransgore

A TEENAGE girl received medical treatment after a suspected deliberate blaze at a New Forest activity centre.

The alarm was raised at 7pm on Sunday, with reports of a small amount of bedding in flames in a lodge bedroom at Avon Tyrrell Outdoor Activity Centre.

A fire crew from Burley was helped by Dorset counterparts containing the emergency at the site, off Whitefield Hill near Bransgore, within 45 minutes.

Crews from Ringwood and Beaulieu also responded but were stood down while en route as they were no longer required.

The firefighters provided oxygen to the young casualty, but a Hampshire & Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said she did not need to be taken to hospital.

The spokesperson added the fire was believed to have been started deliberately and police had attended the scene.

The A&T has contacted the Hampshire force for details.

Avon Tyrrell was contacted but declined to comment.

Lodges are provided, along with camping areas, as accommodation at Avon Tyrrell, which is described on its website as “a leading outdoor learning venue dedicated to the continuous development of young people”.
