Damaged Pier buildings after the 2010 Fire

Damaged Pier buildings after the 2010 Fire
Row of shops damaged after the fire of 2010. These were later demolished in November by the demolition contractors "Best Demolition". After an eight-week programme, removing all loose material from the Pier, only the ballroom remained as a twisted wreck for four more years.

Fire hit Hastings Pier for a second time on 5th October 2010. The alarm was raised at 1am when a small fire was spotted in the ballroom. The flames spread rapidly, explosions were heard by local residents, and flames engulfed the Pier for seven hours before the fire was finally brought under control. The RNLI and other emergency services were called in to assist the firefighters.
