60 firefighters tackle blaze at Eastbourne pier



East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is tackling a serious fire at Eastbourne Pier.
 
Around 60 firefighters are at the scene, after being called at 15.13 on 30 July 2014. 

They are attacking the fire from the coastal side of the building, from the beach and from underneath the Pier.
 
Reasonable progress is being made considering there are high winds.

We are being assisted by the Coastguard, the RNLI and Sussex Police. South East Coast Ambulance are also in attendance.


We are not aware of any injuries or casualties.

A further update will be posted on the website around 18.30.
