UPDATED: Following calls to 999, firefighters quickly arrived to tackle a shed fire at Laws Street, Pembroke Dock.

Our investigations of unusually black smoke appearing above the rooftops in the town centre around 8am on Wednesday, January 31, 2024, led to buildings by the bus stop in Laws Street, where a shed could be seen ablaze.

Calling to the emergency services via 999, we were assured that firefighters were on their way. And sure enough, just a minute later, a Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service vehicle made its way down Bush street.

Firefighters wasted no time in unravelling hoses and tackling the blaze, resulting in plumes of smoke.

The extent of damage was hard to tell from the road, but the incident looked to have been contained before damage was done to property apart from the shed. A statement from Fire Service has now confirmed this:

“At 7.59am on Wednesday, January 31, the Pembroke Dock crew was called to an incident on Laws Street, Pembroke Dock.

“The crew responded to a garden shed measuring approximately 3m x 4m that was well alight on their arrival. 

“Crew members utilised one breathing apparatus set, one hose reel jet and one thermal imaging camera to extinguish the fire.  

“After the fire was extinguished, crew members remained on the scene to dampen down.  The crew left the scene at 8.50am.”
