coldcut™ cobra firefighting system used to extinguish fire in Swanley

Kent Fire and Rescue Service attended a fire involving approximately 200 tonnes of logs and wood chip that was alight in Button Street, Swanley. Two fire engines responded and fire crews used an on-site digger and a cold cut firefighting system to tackle the deep seated fire.

This uses a super-high-pressured water system that cuts through materials and extinguishes fires faster. It can be used for many types of incidents and infuses water with tiny pieces of gravel, which it blasts through a special nozzle on a lance. It was used to cut quickly and effectively into the pile to get to the seat of the fire. Firefighters were at the scene for about an hour and a half.
