Homebase Blaze "Accidental"
7:01am 30th September 2013
A fire that ripped through a DIY store in Liskeard started accidentally.
Around a third of stock has been hit at Homebase - after flames ripped through just after midnight on Saturday.
Crews called in back up from Callington, Looe, Lostwithiel, Saltash, Bodmin, Wadebridge and St Austell.
At one point eighty firefighters were battling back the flames.
They had to cut through metal doors to get access to the fire.
Mark Hewitt from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "Initially, on attendance, due to the security measures we actually had to use hydraulic crash rescue cutting equipment to force entry - then water was very quickly directed into the building."
The DIY chain says it is just pleased that nobody was hurt.7:01am 30th September 2013
