Thorpe Park Saw Alive Fire

On Tuesday evening a fire broke out inside Saw Alive.

The blaze was battled by Firefighters from Egham, who were joined by Fire Engines from Staines and Chertsy at 7:47pm.

They used two hose reels and three donned breathing apparatus to battle the blaze.

At this point in time the cause of the fire is unknown.

One of the Egham Firefighters said : “It was quite a strange one, going in and putting the fire out and obviously got all the horror props in there still.

“They kept bumping into dummies.”

There was minor damage to the attraction, but will remain closed until the cause of the fire is determine.

A Thorpe Park spokesman said: “Our well rehearsed emergency procedures were immediately put into operation. The emergency services were called at 7.51pm with two fire vehicles on site within 5 minutes and the fire was brought under control very quickly.

“The health and safety of our guests is our primary objective and the Thorpe Park Management Team, in conjunction with the Fire Service, are investigating the cause of the fire.

“The attraction will remain closed until the investigation is complete and while we assess the extent of the damage.

“It will re-open when we have brought the maze back to full operating standards and had it passed through the relevant Health and Safety inspections.

The park was closed at the time the fire broke out because it was in the night but Thorpe Park always have alot of night staff to deal with such incidents.
I visited the park a day later and Saw Alive did not look like it was damaged from the outside but it was damaged badly inside the Maze.
