Around 40 firefighters from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service are at the scene of a fire in Winchester. They were called to the blaze at a building under construction on Hatherley Road at 4.32am. The fire is under control.
Hampshire firefighters have set alight to a derelict house in Park Gate for training exercises.
Crews from Fareham, Gosport and Cosham lit small fires in the house which they will escalate during the week.
Fareham station manage Paul Coates is leading the project, and said: "We have lost firefighters and there have been injuries in recent years. This is probably the best training we can do to overcome this and develop our skills. It is a live fire situation, but it is controlled."
The service is hoping that through working with Wessex they will get up to 150 buildings a year to practise their skills on.
Mr Coates added: "With different types of building we'll be able to practise other skills such as search and rescue, collapsed buildings, drill holes and abseiling."
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service are warning people to be careful using barbecues this summer. As the weather is set to improve, the fire service is urging people to be extra safe around barbecues - especially when lighting them.
ITV Meridian finds out how to stay safe with Steve Foye, the Community Safety Support Officer from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service.
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service are urging people to be safety conscious about barbecues this summer.
The Fire Service have put together a list to ensure an enjoyable and safe barbecue in the hot weather.
Only use barbecues in suitable and safe areas and never indoors or in a tent.
Make sure the coals are cool before you move the barbecue and always keep a bucket of water, sand or a garden hose nearby in case of emergencies.
Only use recommended fluids, fire lighters and never petrol.
Gary Elston, Community Safety Officer, said: "This may seem like a long list but most of these things are common sense. By far the biggest danger is the use of flammable liquids to light on the barbecue."
Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service are warning people to be barbecue safe this summer.
As the weather is set to improve, the fire service is urging people to be extra safe around barbecues - especially when lighting them.
Gary Elston, Community Safety Officer, said: "To make sure your event is enjoyable and safe, please make yourself familiar with safety precautions surrounding barbecues. Also, if you've planned a barbecue and the weather lets you down, don't take the barbecue indoors or into a tent.
"In recent years, some people have suffered carbon dioxide poisoning as a result, so we are urging everyone to stay safe this summer."
Firefighters from Hampshire will today compete in a national rescue competition.
The event will see the fire services race to carry out the specialist tasks.
Lee Harvey, Hampshire's Extrication Team Manager, said: "This is a great opportunity for us to practise our specialist skills and for our firefighters to tackle some of the more unusual situations which they might encounter during their career."
