Fire around Abbey Wood and Bexleyheath

There are reports on Twitter that two fires have broken out in between Longleigh Lane and Brampton Road on the boundary of Abbey Wood and Bexleyheath.

The area has extensive woodland and grassland.

Given the fire is in two locations and follows arson at a nearby playground beside Lesnes Abbey at the weekend, questions will be asked as to whether it has been started deliberately.

UPDATE: At least four pumps are on scene and making good progress on damping down the flames. The dry ground makes it possible flames will reemerge so it could be a long job.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    I’m surprised you haven’t reported on the 4 Fires that happened last week in Slade Green on the field next to the train station.
