    Unhappy Fireworks depot blaze

    Switched over to BBC News and caught a news report part way through all about a fireworks depot blaze. Soon realised it was the one I got these fireworks from and was only there on Wednesday!!!

    Sad to hear there were a couple of fire crew fatalities.

    I was gonna add a wise crack to this thread till I heard about the two fatalities. Sounds like the owners were lucky too. They have a house on the site.

    So sad to see something like that at this time of year.
    I only saw it this morning and couldn't belive it. My brother lives opposite where the fire chief was being interviewed live today on the news, half a mile from the bomb site. OMG and not answering his phone, because he's in Eygpt, OMG who's at the house, no it's ok my dad has been there, no broken windows and the house is secure, but he had a heck of a job convincing the police he wasn't a glory hunter and had a police escort to the house with blues and twos going, my five yearold would have loved that bit, lights and sirens.

    Big go out to all of those that were injured because they were just doing there job, what brave lads & lasses we have in our resuce services puting there lives on the line.

    Bit like Buncefield all over again, just this time two lads doing their job weren't so fortunate. Thoughts to the family. Losing anyone this close to Christmas is a bastid.

    Awful, just awful news.

    To loose two of our lads at anytime is tragic but this close to Xmas.......really bad.

    Another sad loss for the UK Fire Service.

    Fair play to Matt Wrack for staying calm and collected about it all when interviewed this morning.

    Thoughts go out to the crew members familes, friends and collegues.

    A speedy recovery to the injured also.

    East and West Sussex F&R have had one hell of a day and night.
