The Fire Brigade have revealed that last night’s fire in Woolwich was in a converted church. Six fire engines and 40 firefighters were sent to the scene.

If Greenwich’s planning portal is to be believed, plans for a church in the building were refused in 2014 but approved on appeal in 2015.

Fire crews from Plumstead, East Greenwich, Eltham and Erith fire stations attended the blaze. Woolwich fire station closed in 2014.

They were called at 10:30pm and the fire was only declared under control almost two hours later.
