The Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service has yet to release any details regarding the suspected cause of the fire that destroyed multiple flats in Amesbury.

The fire broke out at Sandell Place at approximately 7.09pm on Friday, June 9, with eight fire crews from across Wiltshire and Hampshire attending and an aerial ladder platform brought from Basingstoke.

The fire service said the three-storey building was “well-alight on arrival” and two crews remained on the scene overnight to monitor the situation after the stop came at 1.56am.

A number of fundraisers have been created to raise money for the five families impacted by the blaze who have been forced to live in temporary accommodation, the Salisbury Journal understands. 

The fire service declined to comment on the cause of the fire on the morning of Monday, June 12.

Louise Knox, senior communications officer for Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, said: “The fire investigation is ongoing and we will hopefully be able to advise on a cause once it’s complete.”
