Resolved Question:

We had a House Fire last year 10/6/2014, there were 2no Fires 1st one started at approx. 1900hrs . The fire service ECFRS left after 1,5 hrs and said they had to go because they were part-time.
Then a 2nd Fires started approx 2hrs later in same area ( we have 5no Witnesses statements to this fact.) We have been told by Local Gov Ombudsman , we have to take them to Court for Negligence.

I can see the basis of the claim being advanced as a negligence claim. I would have thought that the answer would have been to locate some solicitors who will act on your behalf on the basis of a no win no fee claim. This will allow you to bring the claim you are seeking to advance.
