Windsor Park Street Fire: Investigators still unable to gain access
Park Street

Fire investigators have not yet been able get into the Grade II Georgian listed home torn apart by fire in Windsor's Park Street to probe what caused the inferno.

The property in Park Street was virtually destroyed in a massive fire on Tuesday last week, and more than 80 firefighters were called to put out the blaze.

A spokeswoman from the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service said she spoke to the officer in charge of the investigation yesterday.

She said: "The investigators have not been into the premises yet. It is likely to be some while before they are able to get in, do all the relevant work and then prepare the report."

She added once there is any news the fire service will let anyone know.

At the moment 'all options are being considered as to the potential cause'.

The Royal Borough said its building control team finished its work on Monday. The property has been handed back to the owner and insurance company.

A spokeswoman said: "Dangerous chimneys, side gable and panels of brickwork to the front and rear elevations were removed.

"The footpath and the road were opened and demolition contractors were off site on Monday.

"The site is fenced off to prevent access.

"English Heritage were due to visit this week."
