Fire at Slaugham Manor, forrnerly Slaugham Place

Following the fire reported on picture #1857, yet another fire took place at the Slaugham Manor on Thursday, 9th February 1995, less than 12 months after the earlier blaze. It is said that the cause of the later fire was a blowtorch being used by one of the builders working on the earlier repair work.
On the left a fireman is taking time off to be interviewed by a camera crew from presumably a television company. Meanwhile, on the right another cameraman is shooting some footage for the evening news.
This time the Mid Sussex Citizen estimated that the value of the damage exceeded £1,000,000.
