Fire en­gines are nine feet wide

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

Cam­bridgeshire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice said their en­gines were 2.6 me­tres (nine feet) wide and 8 me­tres (26 feet) long, and res­i­dents should take the di­men­sions into ac­count when park­ing.

The spokesman said: “The key thing for res­i­dents to re­mem­ber when they are look­ing to park is to en­sure there is enough space for a large ve­hi­cle to get

en­sure there is al­ways enough room to al­low larger emer­gency ve­hi­cles such as fire en­gines and am­bu­lances to pass.”

The fire in Hankey Street was started at about 1am by ar­son­ists. Crews spent an hour through.

“If they are ever un­sure, try and find an­other place to park.” The spokesman said the prob­lems were of­ten at their worst at night, and in ar­eas of the city where there were no park­ing reg­u­la­tions.
