Eltham – car bursts into flames

Greenwich
Outdoor fire

Firefighters dealt with a car blaze on the A2/Rochester Way Relief Road in Eltham this evening.

The incident was very visible and the Brigade’s 999 control centre took numerous 999 calls. There were no reports of any injuries.

London Fire Brigade's Director of Operations Dave Brown said:

"If you smell smoke or burning coming from your car while you're driving it, you should pull over as soon as you can in a safe place, get everyone out of the vehicle and always stay a safe distance away.

"Then call the fire brigade and never go back to the vehicle while you're waiting.

"If you are concerned that your vehicle is affected by the recall then contact your manufacturer immediately."

The Brigade was called at 1851 and the fire was under control by 1917. Fire crews from Poplar and East Greenwich fire stations were at scene.
