Collingham Fire Station to open for the community following fire tragedy on Woodhill Road

The fire station in Collingham will be open tomorrow so residents can share their concerns and thoughts following the house fire on Woodhill Road on Saturday.

Crews from Collingham, Newark, Southwell and Mansfield were called to the incident at 7am.

Mrs Justine Collison, her daughter Izzy and son Harvey died as a result of the fire. Their dad Gavin is still in a serious condition in hospital.

A message has been posted today on Collingham Fire Station's Facebook which says their thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies are with the family, friends, neighbours and the entire community of Collingham.

"Words can't begin to describe how we are all feeling following the tragic events," it says.

"One of the proudest things an on-call firefighter can do is to serve his or her own community but when events like this occur it hits us hard.

"We are totally devastated and we know that the healing process for the whole of our village will be long and difficult."

The fire station will be open for the community to meet, talk, share concerns and reassure each other.

"Many of you have already raised concerns about staying safe from fire," they say.

"So please take this opportunity to come and talk to us, share your thoughts and experiences and support each other."

The message also thanks everybody who has given support and kind words through many messages.

"Also a big thank you to all our emergency service colleagues who responded alongside us on Saturday."
