Man arrested after fire at Guildford petrol station

Published at 7:12pm 17th April 2020.

A man has been arrested after a fire at a petrol station in Guildford.

Emergency crews were called to the Esso on Aldershot Road last night (16 April) following reports of a blaze.

The incident led to the road being closed and people were evacuated from nearby homes as a precaution.

Surrey Police said a 47-year-old man was arrested at the scene and remains in custody following the fire, which caused approximately five square metres of damage.

Officers had been called to the petrol station at around 9.15pm after reports of a man attempting to start a fire.

Three fire engines attended and extinguished the flames.

Firefighters were at the scene for around half an hour.
