FIREFIGHTERS have been called to a blaze at the controversial Ghost Ship yard on the outskirts of Hartlepool.
Eight fire engines were called at 2pm today to a fire in a small hold on one of the ships being scrapped at Able UK's yard at Graythorp, near Seaton Carew.

Fire officers say around 100 sq ft of oil is alight, but it is not yet known what started the blaze.

It comes just weeks after 300 workers had to be evacuated from the site last month after a fire started on the French aircraft carrier Le Clemenseau.

Fires on ships being demolished are quite common.

"Fires on ships being demolished are quite common."

Perhaps then Able UK should introduce their own fire fighting facility and not rely on that provided by the County. After all fires where, for example, asbestos could be introduced into the atmosphere could be hazardous to the public at large and considered a Public Nuisance.

There are other functions that deal with hazardous waste and, dependant upon size, have their own safety arrangements. Able UK is a large function which recognises the risks involved in its work and perhaps may be considered negligent in the event it failed to make arrangements to minimise them.

Even when a company has its own fire and rescue teams the county brigade will still attend.
