1400 cars ruined in Liverpool car park fire

Liverpool fire

Photos taken in the aftermath of a huge fire which gutted a auto park, destroying about 1,300 vehicles, have been released.

So far there are no reports of injuries from the blaze at King's Dock, next to the Liverpool Echo Arena but people have been urged to stay away from the area.

The fire brigade have released photos that show the destructive results of a fire in a city centre auto park which destroyed up to 1600 vehicles.

The Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, tweeted that not enough fire engines responded to the incident because of cutbacks.

Lauren Elizabeth Addinall shared pictures showing the evacuation of the horses, adding that it was due to 'cars blowing up'.

Pulling it down would be hard with so many vehicles still inside, Mr Anderson added.

Flames from an exploding auto spread through all seven levels of the Liverpool Echo Arena multistorey auto park in northern England on December 31, destroying 1,400 vehicles and causing at least £10 million worth of damage.

Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service said several dogs were in cars that were parked in the garage, but fire crews were able to rescue them.

In August, Microsoft tied-up with Amazon to let Cortana and Alexa work together - rivaling Google Assistant and Siri. The very first Alexa-enabled smart glasses are on their way, and making their debut at CES 2018 , Las Vegas.

Although it is too early for official estimates, one industry insider told City A.M. the cost of paying out for vehicles and possessions alone would be "millions - more than £2m".

The insider said this was "a noteworthy event. but well within the scale of what insurers can cope with". It was very windy which made the flames worse.

Admiral Group said it had received a number of claims and expects more as the day progresses.

Sue Wright, wife of former England footballer Mark, said she witnessed the start of the blaze and said it was sparked by an engine fire in the 4×4.

In a second message he showed a copy of a letter addressed to Nick Hurd MP, the minister of state for policing and the fire service, in which he asked if existing fire regulations were fit-for-purpose in auto parks.

An accidental fire in one vehicle spread to others nearby, according to initial assessments by Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service (MFRS).

Ms Williams, from Denbigh, Denbighshire, said she had received a "devastating call" to say her vehicle was possibly caught up in the event. "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. They urged owners to contact their insurance companies.
