Four fire engines and around 20 firefighters and officers were called to a house fire on Mortlake Road in Kew last night.
Part of the first floor was damaged by the blaze and most of the second floor was heavily smoke logged in the three storey detached house. A woman was rescued from the property before the Brigade arrived. She was treated at the scene by London Ambulance Service and then taken to hospital.
Station Manager, Andy Walton, was at the scene: “When I arrived crews were working in extremely hot conditions to check that no one was trapped in the property. Firefighters worked hard to extinguish the fire and two dogs were lead to safety from the garden of the property.”
The Brigade was called at 1919 and the incident was over by 2018. Fire crews from Richmond, Chiswick, Acton and Heston fire stations were at the scene.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
