The firemen were amazing, arrived really fast and very professional. We had 5 units turn up and a tea van! I could not give them more praise than I already am, it is shocking that they are having their budgets cut so severely.
We are now all in clean up mode. Down stairs in the workshops everything is black. Everything else is covered in a fine layer of soot, from a distance it looks fine, then you touch something and get black hands. Everything is having to be cleaned with a damp soapy cloth otherwise you just smush the soot around. Everything fabric even in drawers/wardrobes is having to be washed. Luckily we have a fabulous laundrette down the road and the lady has been so helpful and understanding, cant praise her enough either! So far she has done 4 big black bin liners full of clothes and has several more to do too.
Here's a look at where the fire was and the damage done.
