Watford Observer: Croxley mobile home blaze 'suspicious' Croxley mobile home blaze 'suspicious'

A fire that destroyed a mobile home in Croxley Green is being probed by fire investigators this morning.

Fire crews from Rickmansworth and Watford attended the blaze in Hazelwood Road at around 6.30pm last night.

Crew Commander David Tams, from Rickmansworth Fire Station, said when his firefighters reached the property the mobile home at the bottom of the garden was well-ablaze.

He said the flames were threatening and also to spread to a nearby workshop.

Mr Tams said: "It was completely engulfed and threatening the workshop next to it. There was a danger of it spreading. We had two (firefighters with) breathing apparatus and hose reels deal with it."

He added that when the fire was extinguished there was some fire damage to the outside of the workshop and one of its windows had been smashed by the heat coming from the blaze.

Hertfordshire Constabulary was later alerted to the fire as it was deemed to be suspicious.

Further to my comments of yesterday regarding the proposed new school to be built in Croxley.

I`m just wondering why my namesake is being very quiet over the issue of taking away `the green belt`status.

I suppose he is too busy involved in the proposed German Market being put forward by members of the CGRA alias the Parish Council.

Not all members of CGPC back a German Market, in fact two members of the CGPC voted against the budget and many more cllrs didn't attend the Jan FCM, so the budget was passed by eight cllrs, six cllrs didn't attend or vote.

The only reason it doesn't appear inflation busting is because TRDC gave CGPC £12000 in a grant, last year it was £14000 and the clerk transferred £8000 out of reserves, £20000 or nearly 10% overspend as CGPC appear not to be able to live within their means, even with more residencies patying council tax and CGPC precept!
