Windsor Park Street Fire: Teams start demolition of destroyed home

Work has begun to knock down the main house destroyed in a fire in Windsor's Park Street last night.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead's building control team is carrying out controlled demolition of the home. It will be knocked down to ground level due to severe damage. This includes a dangerous chimney and front and rear elevations.

One neighbouring property no longer has a roof and another home has slight fire damage.

Work started a short while ago and the council said it will reassess the situation in the morning before deciding when to complete the demolition of the property.

The demolition follows a major fire in the residential road close to the town centre at about 9.45pm last night. The property was unoccupied at the time of the fire and it is not yet known how it started.

There were no injuries.

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service has two appliances at the scene this afternoon. Crews are standing by in case they are required but are not carrying out any active operational duties.

Utility suppliers were on scene earlier to isolate any power supplies and ensure there was no further risk.

The area will remain cordoned off.
