Wyevale Marlow closed after field fire

Wyevale's Marlow Garden Centre is closed today after a fire in nearby fields yesterday evening engulfed the centre and surrounding roads in smoke.


A spokesperson for Wyevale Garden Centres has told GTN Xtra: "Our Marlow Garden Centre is closed today after the fire in Pump Lane South last night. We are hoping to reopen tomorrow.

"Fortunately none of our staff have been affected by the fire, which broke out in fields near the centre.

"We would like to thank Thames Valley Police and Buckinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service for their prompt response."


The fire spread rapidly through parched fields and some buildings in an industrial complex were effected.  Over 100 firefighters tackled the blaze.  Nearby residents were advised to keep windows shut because of the smoke.


At one point Highways England tweeted: "The fire at a nearby garden centre has been dealt with by @Bucksfire and the #A404 is now fully open in both directions..." however that proved to be incorrect.
