Fire at old Dominoes site on Grays High Street

FIRE CREWS ARE in attendance at the derelict Dominoes gym and snooker site at 76 High Street, Grays.

The site has been derelict for a number of years.

Fire officers received a call from Grays resident, Polly Billington (the prospective parliamentary Labour candidate for Thurrock) at just after 9.30pm on Monday night (May 20th).

Polly said: “I was walking home from Grays railway station to my flat. As I was passing by the building, I could smell a strong burning odour.

I looked through the window and saw a person in the smoke-filled building. They did not seem particularly bothered.

I called 999. Both fire and police attended very quickly. They searched building, secured scene and put the fire out.”
