香港消防處年報 2016 24 行動 Operations 牛頭角道四級火警專輯 六月二十一日,牛頭角道淘大工業村發生四級火警,大火焚燒 108 小時,至六月二十五日晚上救熄;現場三樓和四樓嚴重焚毀, 五樓輕微損毀。消防處出動約 2,900 名消防和救護人員,並派出 約 650 部消防車輛和救護車,撲滅這場大火。事故中一名高級消 防隊長和一名消防隊目分別於六月二十一日和二十四日嚴重受 傷,送院後不治;另有十名消防人員身體不適,送院治理。 滅火期間,消防人員遇到一些困難,原因是火場面積很大,溫 度熾熱,滿布濃煙。現場有逾 200 個迷你倉間隔,布局複雜,縱 橫交錯,通道亦十分狹窄。消防人員須把上鎖的迷你倉間隔逐 一破開作灌救。 這場火警引起大眾關注迷你倉設施的消防安全和規管問題,以 及本港舊式工業大廈的消防安全。為此,消防處與屋宇署、地 政總署和勞工處聯手巡查全港所有迷你倉庫,檢視有關處所有 否違反現行法例,同時加強迷你倉設施和倉庫的消防安全措施。 Feature on no. 4 alarm fire on Ngau Tau Kok Road On June 21, a no. 4 alarm fire broke out at Amoycan Industrial Centre, Ngau Tau Kok Road. After 108 hours of firefighting, the fire was put out on the night of June 25 leaving the third and fourth floor severely damaged by fire while the fifth floor slightly damaged. About 2,900 fire and ambulance personnel and 650 fire appliances and ambulances were mobilised to fight the blaze. A Senior Station Officer and a Senior Fireman sustained serious injuries on June 21 and June 24 respectively and they passed away later at hospital. Ten other fire personnel felt unwell and were conveyed to hospital for medical treatment. The fire personnel encountered difficulties in putting out the blaze due to the large area of the site concerned, severe heat and dense smoke. There were more than 200 mini-storage cubicles with complex and criss-cross layout and the passageways were very narrow. Firefighters had to break each locked cubicle open to hose them. The fire had sparked concerns over the fire safety and the regulation on mini-storage facilities as well as the fire safety of old-style industrial buildings in Hong Kong. The FSD, together with the Buildings Department, Lands Department and Labour Department, were tasked to inspect all mini-storage facilities to see whether the premises concerned were in violation of existing legislation and to step up fire safety measures in mini- storage facilities and warehouses.
