Although I cannot be postitive about the date, I do remember it was a Saturday afternoon. Checking my diary for that year, other commitments narrow it down to being possibly on this date. The incident was across the road from where we lived at the time, and the first we were aware of the incident was when eveything suddenly went dark, because of the large volume of smoke. I think the attendance was 5 pumps, probably due to the large number of repeat calls to various addresses in the vicinity.
