City vehicle park blaze leaves Cumbrian visitors in shock

Liverpool's Echo Arena has offered its thanks to the city's emergency services, volunteers and the British Red Cross for their assistance after a fire at its auto park destroyed an estimated 1,400 vehicles.

Motorists abandoned their cars and fled along with 4,000 people who were evacuated as the final event of the Liverpool International Horse Show was called off at the Echo Arena.

It is believed that 1,400 vehicles were destroyed.

Eighty animals that were stabled on the ground floor of the auto park were evacuated in time. Like fog outside and acrid smell!

Initial investigations indicate an accidental fire within the Land Rover caused other cars to ignite.

"We believe that all vehicles parked in the auto park have been destroyed and advise owners to contact their insurance companies", Merseyside police said in a statement to the media.

A reception centre was set up for people unable to get home due to the fire and locals volunteered to take in or transport those left stranded. "The speed at which the fire spreads means you simply aren't going to put it out", said Stephens.

"The flames were just shooting out of the engine and coming past the tyres", she said to the BBC.

"If you see smoke from the Liverpool Echo Arena auto park fire then stay indoors, close all your windows and doors and if you have difficulty breathing seek medical assistance". We just left everything in the auto, handbags, telephone, cash, and just went.

Nobody got injured, be it humans or horses. "I saw one auto on fire but it was clear it was ferocious and spreading".

At times, 21 fire engines were on site to tackle the blaze, working all night alongside police, ambulance and the staff of ACC Liverpool, which operates Echo Arena.

Lorna Hughes, a reporter with the Liverpool Echo, shared videos showing the charred remains of the building in the aftermath of the inferno.

Barbour said the incident shouldn't belie "what we achieved in the first five sessions of the show, and we will be back to do it again next December".

"My thoughts are also with those who have lost their vehicles and possessions as a result of the fire".
