Fire at Nottingham railway station - Nottingham

We are continuing to support our colleagues at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service as they tackle a fire at Nottingham railway station today.

Approximately 60 firefighters are fighting the blaze, which started at around 6.30am. 

A number of roads in the city centre remain closed, and there are no train services calling at Nottingham.

The fire, which is believed to have started in a public toilet in the new part of the building, has spread across the station concourse and into the roof. Both parts of the train station are heavily smoke logged.

Fire crews in breathing apparatus are working to extinguish the fire and an aerial ladder platform is in use.

A joint investigation into the cause of the fire between Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and British Transport Police will take place this morning.

Incident Commander Bryn Coleman from Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “This is a significant fire in a prominent part of the city centre. Crews from across the county are working hard to extinguish the fire, and are liaising with our partner agencies to ensure a co-ordinated and targeted approach to this incident.

“We will keep the public updated via our Twitter feeds, websites and the local media, and would like to thank anyone affected for their patience while we deal with this incident.”

If anyone has any information about the fire, please call BTP on 0800 40 50 40 or text 61016, quoting reference number 85 of 12/1/18.
