1970's houses in Sampshill Road, Westoning.
Within 500 metres of these houses, on 11 September 1976 at 07:10, a Texaco petrol tanker overturned in the High Street, caught fire and exploded. Eight houses also caught fire, 21 people were made homeless and 100 more evacuated for ten hours. (The only injuries were to firemen attending the blaze - their fire engine overturned.) Petrol entered the drains and cast iron inspection covers were blown high into the air when the spreading fire ignited the vapour.
