None Injured In Echo Arena Carpark Blaze

Emergency Services are advising anyone affected by the fire at Liverpool Echo Arena auto park to direct any vehicle enquiries to their insurance companies (quoting reference number 650 of December 31) and not to call the emergency services.

Nina Barbour, president of Liverpool Horse Show, said: "I would like to express my enormous thanks and gratitude to the emergency services, the Echo Arena staff, riders, grooms and support staff, the general public and the City of Liverpool following Sunday night's events". It was too hot to be extinguished with water from hydrants, so a high-volume pump was used to draw water from the River Mersey, and two more were brought from other fire brigades in the region.

A Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson added: "The fire is ongoing but has been contained to the auto park". Like fog outside and acrid smell!

Owners of the destroyed vehicles should contact their insurance companies, Merseyside police said. Liverpool city council set up temporary accommodation for people who were unable to travel home after their auto was destroyed.

Bob Prattey, chief executive of The ACC Liverpool Group, said: "We can confirm that our future events will be able to proceed as planned following the serious fire which was contained in the Liverpool Waterfront Car Park on New Year's Eve".

Videos and photos taken at the scene show several levels of the car-park engulfed in flames, while numerous witnesses reported hearing multiple explosions from the burning vehicles. "The speed at which the fire spreads means you simply aren't going to put it out", said Stephens.

"If you see smoke from the Liverpool Echo Arena vehicle park fire then stay indoors, close all your windows and doors and if you have difficulty breathing seek medical assistance".

Nobody got injured, be it humans or horses.

She said the fire was "ferocious and spreading".

Twelve fire trucks were sent to tackle the blaze.

Sunday's evening session was the final event in the horse show.

"My thoughts are also with those who have lost their vehicles and possessions as a result of the fire". Despite the damage, an arena spokesperson confirmed all people and horses are safe and that "there were no injuries during this awful incident".
