Container crate is destroyed by fire in arson attack

Have your say

ARSONISTS are thought to be behind a blaze that totally destroyed a container crate.

Firefighters from Gosport fire station were called out to the incident at 9.10pm last night.

They battled for more than an hour to put out the fire in Gilkicker Road, Gosport.

A spokesman from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service said that the incident had 100 per cent destroyed the crate and that an investigation would be carried out due to it being classed as ‘cause doubtful’ meaning it could be the work of an arsonist.
