New Year's Eve blaze destroys up to 1600 cars in Liverpool

The Liverpool International Horse Show was cancelled after a fire broke out in a nearby car park

Cars are seen on fire during a serious blaze in a multi-storey auto park in Liverpool, on 31 December.

The Liverpool International Horse Show had been set up before the fire was in full swing, but those horses that had been stored in the auto park were moved into the arena itself before the fire reached their level.

"Due to a serious fire in a multi-storey vehicle park near to the Echo Arena, and on advice from the emergency services, the show's final session will not proceed today".

Firefighters were called to the vehicle park at 4:42pm yesterday afternoon, but were still battling to contain the blaze, which had spread quickly thanks to strong winds, late this morning.

Liverpool City Council opened a reception center for people who were unable to get home because of the blaze.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson took to Twitter to express his gratitude to the community for their offers of assistance.

The blaze consumed a multi-storey vehicle park close to The Echo Arena where the prestigious event was due to take place.

The Liverpool International Horse Show on New Year's Eve was cancelled and horses which had been on the first level were moved to the arena.

Residents living in apartments nearby and tourists staying in hotels were also forced to leave as 12 fire engines and aerial ladders were scrambled to the scene. "I saw one vehicle on fire but it was clear it was ferocious and spreading".

As the fire continues, a huge smoke cloud nearly covers the camera as fears raise if it could spread to the neighbouring Liverpool Arena. We can confirm again that all people and horses are safe and there were no injuries during this awful incident. At one point 21 fire engines were attending the scene. The show's final night on Sunday was cancelled.

A massive fire that erupted on the New Year's eve in the United Kingdom has led to the destruction of around 1400 vehicles.
