Firefighters attend blaze at derelict building in Eastney
FIREFIGHTERS attended a small blaze at an empty building in Eastney.
The Southsea crew were called to old naval base, off Fort Cumberland Road, at around 5.37pm today.
A resident living nearby said it was around the eighth fire to be started in the last two months at the building.
‘It has been a problem for a while but no-one is doing anything to deter people from starting these fires,’ he said.
A spokesman from the fire service said they were unaware of problems.
As previously reported in The News, police have had to remove young people from the site.
