FIREFIGHTERS are dealing with a fire at the Occupy Homeless Sanctuary in Boscombe.

One crew from Springbourne is tackling a blaze after they were called at 3.40pm.

A spokesperson for Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said it had been reported that tents were alight.

Two hose reel jets are being used to extinguish the fire.

Last month, firefighters were called to the former coal yard in Ashley Road three times in little over a week.

It follows the first fire at the site, which took place early in the morning on Saturday, February 10. A kitchen area and store room burned to the ground.

On February 14, one of the camp’s tents was destroyed in a fire.

Then on February 20, firefighters tackled unattended bonfires at the site.
