Fire crews remained on the site of a fire in a barn at Norwood Hill Road in Charlwood for four days, after it broke out in the early hours of Thursday morning. 

Initially several fire pumps including the aerial ladder platform and two water carriers attended the scene. 

The fire was in a commercial storage unit containing composite decking which was plastic-based and waterproof.  Surrey Fire and Rescue Service removed and extinguished the damaged contents of the barn on Saturday evening and remained on site for a further three hours to monitor the scene using thermal imaging cameras. 

The cause of the fire is unknown.
