Devastating blaze in car park

The absence of a sprinkler system has been blamed for the devastating spread of a blaze which destroyed around 1400 vehicles in a multi storey car park in Liverpool in the UK.

A witness told police she had first seen flames emerging from under the bonnet of a Land Rover which quickly spread to cars nearby.

The car park was situated next to Liverpool’s Echo Arena which had been hosting a horse riding event. But while the cars were burned out rescuers managed to save several horses that had been in vehicles on the building’s ground floor.
