A large fire at Cottesmore Golf and Country Club in Pease Pottage has left behind a scene of complete devastation.

The fire which started late afternoon was attended to by 10 Fire Engines from West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service and supported by engines from Salfords station.

The fire reportedly began around 5pm this afternoon (Monday 11 June).

A video on social media shows huge flames and plumes of black smoke rising high into the sky.

Currently there are no reports of any injuries.

The initial call came into the fire service at 17:03.

The fire was located and covered the ground floor, first floor and roof space of a building used as a golf club and conference facility which was 60m by 40m in size.

The fire service had to use a number of jets, ladders and an aerial platform to manage and control the fire and they have confirmed that they would be in attendance throughout the night.

An investigation has now begun to determine the cause of the fire.

An amazing £1,166 was raised for local seven year old girl, Ebonie Musselwhite, to help towards funding treatment for her rare form of acute leukaemia.

Watch Manager Julian Bridgman, who supported with the organisation of the event, said:

“The day went really well and the dedication that everybody put in, not only on the day, but in the preparation stages was exceptional.

“A special thanks goes to the Rapid Relief Team (RRT). Their group of volunteers did an incredible job with providing and preparing the food for 1,100 people that enjoyed the free BBQ. The thanks is also extended to Asda and Tesco who donated prizes for the raffle and all of our Community Volunteers for their hard work on the day.”
