A dog was rescued by firefighters last night after a fire broke out in a terraced house of two floors on Grosvenor Crescent in Kingsbury , NW9.
WM Simon Horn from Stanmore fire station was at the scene and said:
“When we first arrived at the scene the roof was heavily alight. The initial crews did an amazing job and worked very hard to tackle the fire and prevented it from spreading to any neighbouring properties.
“Once the fire was under control crews wearing breathing apparatus searched the house and found the dog, a little Yorkshire terrier, on the ground floor. They quickly got it out and luckily it was not injured.“
Four fire engines and around 20 firefighters were called to the fire at 2231and the fire was under control by 2334.
The roof of the terraced house was severely damaged by the fire.
Fire crews from Stanmore, Wembley, West Hampstead and Harrow fire stations were at the scene.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
