Five vehicles from Basingstoke Fire Station were called to the property on Pitman Close, a residential street, in Basingstoke. The house was empty at the time and the crane operator was helped out with injury..

The crane was in the colours of hire company Terranova, which was dissolved last year. Photos released by the fire service show it to be a two-axle single-cab city crane, suggesting either a Kato Crevo CR-250 or a Demag AC 25.
