Heavy duty equipment is to be brought in to help tackle a fire that broke out a week ago at the police firearms training centre in Portishead.
One crew remains at the scene dealing with hot spots. It's hoped the developers will provide specialist equipment to lift the collapsed roof, allowing firefighters in to deal with the small fires still burning.
Avon and Somerset Fire Service says it is still dealing with 'hotspots' following a large fire at a partially-built police firearms centre in Portishead. The fire broke out five days ago, with an anarchist group posting a letter on a Bristol website claiming responsibility.
The facility under construction at the Black Rock Quarry site was a £16 million pound education centre to train officers in the use of firearms. Avon and Somerset Police say they are 'devastated' by the fire's impact.
The fire service say its efforts to control the fire have been hampered by the building being too unsafe for crews to enter.
Investigations into a fire at the new police firearms training centre in Portishead cannot begin until the fire is fully extinguished and structural engineers confirm that it is safe to enter the building.
Crews were still damping down at the scene in Black Rock Quarry last nigh and specialist equipment has been brought in to help gain access to the centre.
The cause is currently being treated as unexplained - despite claims from an anarchist group that they started the fire on Monday night.
Valley Road is closed in both directions due to the fire between Down Road and B3124. Police advice is to use the Coast Road or Portishead High Street. The closure is likely to be ongoing for some time. Initial reports suggest closures could be in place until at least Friday.
