The fire appears to be at the crane which serves the aggregate plant.
This blaze follows a Town Centre fire just a few days ago. As well as that event, many fires have occurred over the past week across London as hot weather has taken hold. The London Fire Brigade has had to attend a number of multi-pump fires which has left them stretched given service cuts in recent years.
Woolwich had its fire station closed and east Greenwich saw a reduction in fire engines.
