Huge fire near Stroud by Jones the Steam

Huge fire near Cainscross this evening. I saw a column of smoke from the office window earlier and thought 'That's a big fire'.. from the top of Stroud by the police station you could see it was a seriously huge fire!

If I can work out how to get a photo out of my phone I will post one!

Pics fom the top car park by the police station in Stroud. Not brilliant, mobile phone job and I have a 'blob' on the lens.

A crop of the above showing the flames. This was a fair way from the fire so it must have been huge.

A large building that was used for car cleaning and repair went up. I managed to get quite close by going along a very dark and muddy Canal path from the Cainscross end. The roof was well alight and not to long after there was a large explosion. They were still finding cylinders half way through yesterday. I ended up standing by the Command unit (there is some good kit in there) and the hydraulic platform from Cheltenham (a beast) and we were told that we had to move as it was dangerous – yet there were 100+ people on the Stroud rugby ground watching & training and thats closer.

If you have Google Earth or some other online map handy, if you look for Chestnut Lane along the A419 (first right from Cainscross Roundabout) you will come across a place with lots of cars. I believe it was the red roofed building that I saw going up.

All in all its been a busy weekend as yesterday there was a large bungalow fire just across from there.

Thank you GFRS

thanks for the images of the fire chaps.

I hope that everything is now safe and everything around has returned to normality. I wonder how the fire started?
