Fire crews remain at Luckington Manor
Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service has remained at the site of a significant fire in Luckington overnight, and crews are likely to remain there for much of the morning.
The service was called to Luckington Manor at 1.16pm yesterday where a bedroom fire had spread to other parts of the Grade II listed building.
Four fire engines, an aerial appliance and an incident command vehicle were kept at the scene throughout the night on a watching brief, dealing with hotspots and damping down.
At 7am today this attendance was dropped to three fire engines.
About 35 per cent of the 17th Century manor has been severely affected by fire, although there is smoke damage to the whole property. Firefighters worked with manor staff to salvage furniture etc.
The initial fire investigation will start later this morning, although parts of the building remain unsafe and this could limit how much work can be done. Firefighters will remain at the scene while this is underway.
The Street in Luckington remains closed, although it is hoped it can be reopened by mid-morning.
