Firesfighters second visit to Hardley factory
11:35am Friday 14th May 2010 in News
FIRE crews have been called to a Hampshire company for the second time in less than 24 hours.
They were summoned to the Charleston Industrial Estate in Hardley today after 1,500 litres of an inflammable liquid started leaking from a storage tank.
Crews from Beaulieu, Hardley, Hythe and the St Mary's station in Southampton are using foam to contain the leak.
Last night firefighters were called to the same company, Tradebe, to tackle a blaze in a silo filled with 50 tons of woodchippings, sawdust and tar.
A Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said the two incidents were unrelated.
