Fire at Digital Harbour

04 Dec 2019

Fire at Digital Harbour Image

By Rhonda Dredge

Drama struck the offices of Digital Harbour on a quiet Friday last month when a fire broke out in the shrubbery just after lunchtime.

The fire brigade arrived promptly at around 2.15pm but many in the Life Lab Hub were unaware of the fire behind their building.

Officers quickly got the blaze under control with smoke billowing through the greenery.

The fire was probably lit by a cigarette, said one fireman, who was keeping onlookers back from inhaling smoke.

“That will open a can of worms,” said one worker in the building.

“There are people who smoke everywhere,” said Jack Hayes, a marketing coordinator who works on the first floor.

Mr Hayes rushed down to take a picture when he saw a fire engine turn into Digital Drive.

“They took 20 minutes to put it out,” he said.
