Lysons Avenue Fire

Lysons Avenue Fire

Surrey Firefighters received reports of a fire within an industrial building on Lysons Avenue Fire, Ash Vale, at approximately 5 p.m. on Wednesday 31st January 2024. The fire service worked through the night to bring the building under control. Together with Surrey Police and Surrey highway contractors, Lysons Avenue has been temporarily closed while the building is made safe. Access to Avondale is still available to residents via the North Entrance / Exit near North Camp station. Lysons Avenu remains open to pedestrians. A signposted diversion currently takes traffic via Frimley and Sraftford Road.

Fire damage can be seen to the LINCAD Power Management Systems building, which manufactures and supplies commercial batteries. Fire crews are monitoring the situation to ensure all remnants of the fire are fully extinguished. To sustain a continuous water supply, water is being pumped from the Basingstoke Canal. This has resulted in a temporary speed ramp along the Ash Vale Station pedestrian crossing, which protects the water hose.

 

The road closure is expected to remain in place throughout 1 February 2024.  The Lysons Avenue fire was successfully contained thanks to the speedy response of the fire service and does not appear to have spread to any surrounding buildings.
