Major fire at Newton Aycliffe - Stillers
« on: Nov 05, 2010, 15:06 »
Explosion on Aycliffe industrial estate - video (From The Northern Echo)

This is in the next unit from where I work. Looking at the smoke and flames from where I stood at 1.15 today I'm surprised that no-one lost their lives. It took hold so quickly that the building was engulfed within 15 minutes of the first exposion. The fire crews stayed back as the goods continued to explode putting thick black smoke and steel high into the sky. and as I left the police had no plans to evacuate the surrounding building and told us we were safer indoors to avoid the falling debruit and smoke.

Bonfire Night certainly lived up to it's name! At first we thought it was us that was on fire, but were glad that it wasn't, and that the wind was blowing away from us. Early indications are that no-one was hurt and that's good news. No doubt we'll hear a lot about the aftermath. That's two fires in companies adjacent to us in the last 18 months.  :shock:

they have also announced that the regular Bonfire celebration at The Oak Leaf is cancelled until further notice due to the proximity to the fire.

This interview is conducted at our fence, So I gather looking at the tape on video they must have extended the exclusion Zone after I left at 1.45pm. with 7000 pallets of aersol cans exploding I'm pleased I'm getting the updates from home!

Whereabouts is the Stillers place? I don't remember it from when I used to work in Aycliffe.

Its right near the complex and not to far of the blue bridge just wack this postcode into google maps DL5 6SP and youll see exactly where it is. By the way even when in horndale you can hear the explosions. My Sony Cybershot could even hear the explosions lol

Off the mini roundabout where the School Aycliffe road goes up to the Oakleaf Centre past Hydro/Ineos.

It appeared to be the new building to the far left of the tag that actually went up
