Dorking fire (17/09/08)


Dorking fire (17/09/08)
Originally uploaded by kipperfrog
We left work a bit early today due to the view out of the window! There were helicopters circling all around, and sirens coming from the town centre.. I'm not sure what it was in Dorking that had caught alight, but it looked like something quite large.. hopefully it wasn't the Dorking cockerel! It didn't smell like it..

We think it was the Dorking Industrial estate

Apparently it was the scrap yard near Dorking West station that went up, all the trains got suspended (as the line runs right next to it), that resulted in lots of coaches blocking all the traffic in Redhill town centre doing replacement services...oh and the school nearby is still closed today...

The bad thing is, there are *zero* other decent pics, and certainly none of the actual fire, Dorking must be citzen journalist-free...! (yourself excepted, of course)... ;)
