FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze in an office block overnight.

A crew from Fareham fire station were called to the premises in The Gardens, near Sainsbury’s Broadcut at 12.50am today

Smoke was coming out from the back of the building and flames could be seen through the glass doors of the office.

Crew manager Paul Campbell said: ‘It was just a case of extinguishing the fire and searching the rest of the premises. There was no one in there.

‘Once we were sure there was no one in there, we had to go back in and check for heat damage.’

It’s not known what caused the fire and an investigation will begin this morning. The damage to the office is quite severe.
