Four fire engines and 21 firefighters and officers were called to a small fire a water pumping station on Nine Elms Lane in Wandsworth this morning.
Station Manager Andy Walton who was at the scene said:
“Crews worked hard to extinguish the fire using dry powder and then once they had ventilated the area took the affected pump apart to ensure the fire was completely out. By successfully containing the fire to the one affected pump and stopping it from spreading to the others in the building, we were able to prevent the incident from having any impact on the local water management system.”
The Brigade was called at 0503 and the fire was under control at 0823. Crews from Clapham, Battersea and Lambeth fire stations were at the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
