The scene after the fire [photo. East Anglian Daily Times]
News has just reached us of a fire at Heritage Reclamations in Sproughton that took place last November. Owner Richard Howells said, "I had been over in Essex to take my mum out for a meal and happened to be driving through the village and as I went by a fire engine pulled up. I did not realise that it was my building but I stopped because I thought that I could be helpful but realised that they were trying to break into the front of my building. I felt as though I wanted to grab a hose and go in and do something about it but there was a strong hand on my shoulder which prevented me from doing that.” It took more than 40 firefighters to tackle the blaze as the fire quickly spread from a workshop in the ground floor into the first floor and roof.
We are pleased to say that they are now up and running following the serious blaze.
