MORE than 25 firefighters battled a blaze which ripped through a workshop in Fordingbridge this morning (Friday).


The alarm was raised around 7.40am as flames engulfed workbenches and engines at a commercial site in Ringwood Road.

Equipped with breathing apparatus, the fire crews from the town, Ringwood, Eastleigh, Ferndown and Westbourne spent just under an hour containing the emergency. They also vented smoke outside.

No details were available as to the extent of damage caused to the building itself, but a Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said it had been deemed “saveable”.

The spokesperson added an investigation into the incident did not need to be carried out.
