Quick action by fire officers brought a blaze at Massy Stores in Worthing, Christ Church under control.
According to Divisional Officer Mervin Mayers, around 5:36 a.m., a passerby saw smoke emitting from the supermarket and informed officers working at the Worthing fire station located next door.
“They [officers] went into action and after searching they recognized there was a freezer that started the fire.
“Right now they are engaged in ventilation procedures to remove the smoke from the building so they can get a better look at what has taken place.”
Mayers and two other senior officers led a team of eleven officers from the Worthing and Bridgetown fire stations that responded to the fire.
