Fire in extraction system at Tilbury Docks

Port of Tilbury

FIRE Crews were called to Tilbury Docks this morning (Saturday 27 April) after reports of a fire in an extraction system.

Watch Manager Scott Fretton said: “The fire started after a build up of dust ignited within the extraction system.

“Thanks to the sprinkler system within the extractor the fire was contained and therefore damage was limited.

“Crews worked quickly to extinguish remaining smouldering hotspots and ensure the area was safe.”

By 8am crews had confirmed that the fire was completely extinguished and the area was safe.
