Crews tackle top floor blaze in South Street, Deal, with turntable ladder

By Gerry Warren

Firefighters used a turntable ladder to fight a flat fire at the top of a four-storey building in Deal early this morning.

Four crews were called to the scene in South Street shortly before 00.25am and some wore breathing masks to tackle the blaze.

The road was closed while the ladder was extended to reach the fire and a hose reel jet and two main jets used to put out the fire.
