Fire at commercial property

Around 100 people safely evacuated from a kitchen fire at a restaurant on Nelson Road in Greenwich, this afternoon.

The diners left the restaurant before the arrival of the Brigade and fortunately there were no injuries.

The fire affected a small area of the restaurant’s kitchen on the ground floor of the building.

Station Manager Paul Hobbs who was at the scene, said: “Crews wearing breathing apparatus worked quickly to bring the fire under control. They successfully stopped it from spreading and used dry powder and carbon dioxide fire extinguishers to contain the fire to the deep fat fryer.”

Three fire engines and around 15 firefighters from Greenwich, East Greenwich and Deptford fire stations attended the incident.

The Brigade was called at 1259 and the fire was under control at 1428.
