Flat fire in North Woolwich


Shortly before 2pm on Monday 17th August a fire broke out in a flat in Sheerness Mews, fortunately the smoke detector triggered an alarm and the London Fire Brigade were soon on the scene with two pump ladders attending.

A two man team wearing breathing apparatus and carrying a single hose reel entered the building and whilst there appeared to be no flames there was a lot of smoke.
