Industrial premises are environments built solely for business purposes. These premises come in all shapes and sizes (which can typically be broken down into small, large and very large) and include buildings such as:

  • Warehouses
  • Manufacturing Buildings
  • Flex Buildings
  • Telecom/Data Hosting Centres

Industrial Premises Fire, Kent

On the 2nd March 2018 at around 4pm, a fire broke out in an a large industrial warehouse in a town in Kent, United Kingdom. It took four fire engines to control the well developed fire which had caused the roof of the building to collapse. Members of the police force were also at the scene and closed the surrounding roads to let firefighters extinguish the blaze without interruption, while the Kent Fire and Rescue Service notified residents within a 100m radius of the scene to close their windows and doors until the fire had been extinguished.

The cause of the fire is still unknown and, fortunately, no injuries were recorded.

What are the Fire Risks Associated with Industrial Premises?

There are many fire risks associated with Industrial Premises, including:

  • Store Rooms
    Many types of industrial premises will contain storerooms, which may sometimes hold flammable materials with limited supervision. If this is the case, a fire can break out and may not be detected until it is too late.
  • Electrical Apparatus
    If pieces of electrical apparatus are not serviced regularly, have been subjected to misuse or have electrical faults, then the risk of fire rises.
  • Flammable Substances
    Many types of industrial premises have a range of flammable substances which increases the risk of fire. The majority of the fires reported caused by flammable substances are accidental. However, the combination of flammable substances used with poorly maintained equipment will increase the risk of fire.
