Fire at commercial property

Ten fire engines and 72 firefighters and officers were called to a fire on an industrial estate on West Mews near West Road in Tottenham, N17 on Saturday evening.

The fire affected a single storey industrial bakery unit which partially collapsed. Although the fire is now under control, crews will be there throughout the night damping down deep seated pockets of fire.

Station Manager Ian Frame who is at the scene said: “Crews were confronted with a large fire when they arrived and worked hard to confine it to the bakery and stop it from spreading to any neighbouring factory units. There was some fuel stored on site but crews isolated the supply and it was not involved in the fire.

"Thankfully there were no injuries but the fire is still producing a small amount of smoke so we’re advising residents living nearby to keep their doors and windows closed throughout the night as a precaution. We will now be working with our partners in Haringey Council, the Metropolitan Police and London Ambulance Service to restore normal business in the area as soon as possible.”

The Brigade was called at 1819 on and the fire was under control by 0101 on Sunday morning. Crews from Tottenham, Edmonton, Walthamstow, Stoke Newington, Enfield, Holloway and other surrounding fire stations attended the scene. Two aerial ladder platforms were also in use at the incident.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
