Lewes and Fireworks

Three months ago a fire on the high street exploded because of fireworks stored in the building.

Today, sadly, two firefighters lost their lives at a nearby fireworks factory.

It’s astonishing that the utter pyro-chaos that engulfs Lewes each Nov 5th can leave the place in tact and then these incidents occur at times of apparent calm. At least, I suppose, we can be thankful that this fire occured after bonfire night, so that the storage wasn’t stocked up in preparation.
