Six fire engines remain at the scene of a serious fire in Hastings this evening (Wednesday, December 5).

A spokeswoman for East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service (ESFRS) said reports were first received just before 3.45pm, saying there was a fire on a patio at St Helen’s Wood Road.

There are still no reports of any injuries, according to ESFRS.

The spokesman added: "As of 17.30, firefighters are using breathing apparatus, main jets and firefighting foam to tackle the fire.

"Fire engines from Bohemia Road, The Ridge, Pevensey, Herstmonceux, Battle and Broad Oak are at the scene along with the command unit from Bexhill."

The road had closed when emergency services first attended the scene but, according to traffic reports, it has now reopened.
