Liverpool Arena Fire: Photos Released Showing Damage Caused By Blaze


A devastating fire has destroyed around 1,400 vehicles in a multi-story auto park next to Liverpool's Echo Arena.

Eighty animals that were stabled on the ground floor of the vehicle park were evacuated in time.

The fire next to Liverpool's Echo Arena also threatened horses that were stabled in the garage for performances at the Liverpool International Horse Show.

The fire was accidental but questions have been raised over whether a sprinkler system would have extinguished, or at least slowed-down the impact of the fire. If we had had those number of officers and appliances turn up, would we have been able to manage the situation rather than lose control of it, which we did.

A blaze has destroyed every vehicle left in a 1,600-capacity auto park serving the British city of Liverpool's indoor arena, police said on Monday.

Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service said two dogs were rescued overnight during the operation.

He said: "At around 5pm, the announcer told us that that there was fire in the auto park next door". Nobody was hurt in the fire, which is believed to have started in a single vehicle. The blaze started Sunday afternoon. Liverpool city council set up temporary accommodation for people who were unable to travel home after their vehicle was destroyed.

"The flames were just shooting out of the engine and coming past the tyres", she said to the BBC.

"It looked like a ball of fire on the front of the vehicle and it was producing a lot of smoke", she said.

At times, 21 fire engines were on site to tackle the blaze, working all night alongside police, ambulance and the staff of ACC Liverpool, which operates Echo Arena. "I saw one auto on fire but it was clear it was ferocious and spreading". "All people and horses are safe and secure, and I thank spectators, riders and support teams for their understanding and co-operation during what was a hard situation", the show's president, Nina Barbour, said on Facebook.
