Shed fire in Bexley

18/07/2018 17:52
House or flat fire

Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters were called to a fire at a house on Torbrook Close in Bexley.

A shed and fence were completely destroyed in the fire. One 25kg butane cylinder was cooled and removed as a precaution, as some cylinders can explode when exposed to heat. A small part of the exterior fixtures on the two storey semi-detached house were also damaged by the blaze.

The Brigade was called at 1752 and the fire was under control by 2016. Fire crews from Bexley, Sidcup, Erith and Plumstead fire stations attended the scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Brigade and Metropolitan Police Service.
