Blaze destroys 1400 cars at Liverpool parking garage

Fire broke out near the Echo Arena where the Liverpool International Horse Show was taking place

In the clip, you see the third floor of the vehicle park, in Kings Dock, Liverpool, completely engulfed with flames as thick, dark smoke fills the air.

A massive blaze in a carpark described by firefighters as one of the worst they had dealt with has destroyed 1,400 vehicles.

"We are sorry to customers who were due to attend the evening performance of the Liverpool International Horse Show, which was cancelled as a result of the fire, as well as those people whose vehicles were in the auto park and who have been affected by this situation".

Ms Wright helped ensure 80 horses being stabled on the ground floor of the auto park were led to safety.

"Then someone knocked on our door and told us the hotel was being evacuated and we had to leave immediately".

The party abandoned the minibus and the adults led the children to safety on foot while Mrs Wright alerted the emergency services and went to help evacuate the horses. One expert said the rules that exempted auto parks from having sprinkers were based on 50-year-old research.

"This is a concrete building, quite clearly we don't know whether it had sprinklers or not".

Pirates Trade Gerrit Cole To The Astros
Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported the deal shortly after first noting a trade was a "imminent". Passan did note that "generally, this sort of thing winds up with a deal being consummated".

"It was horrific. It was like something you watched off a film".

"You could hear cars popping and exploding: every five or 10 seconds there was an explosion. I think that's a very good outcome indeed". "It looked like a ball of fire on the front of the vehicle and it was producing a lot of smoke".

"We were spending the weekend in Liverpool".

"Bottom line is, this is something we will look at - we will take his advice and other people's advice, and if there's things we can do to make the vehicle parks more safer then that is exactly what we will do".

Horses, which were being held inside containers on the first floor of the auto park, were also evacuated. It was all insignificant as long as everyone was OK and we could get the horses out.

She said: "A auto I can replace - yes, it was my pride and joy, but we can replace that".
