Fire hits Plumstead High Street

Plumstead High Street has been closed after a fire.

The blaze appears to have begun in the block housing shops including Poundland.

Numerous emergency services are on scene and buses are on diversion.

Transport for London state:

“PLUMSTEAD HIGH STREET: Buses are on diversion between Plumstead Station and Basildon Road via Griffin Road, Waverley Crescent, Warwick Terrace, Plumstead Common Road, Kings Highway and Wickham Lane due to a building fire.

Buses towards Erith or Abbey Wood will miss stops from Lakedale Road to Plumstead Corner/Church Manorway.

Buses towards Woolwich will miss stops from Plumstead Corner/Rockmount Road to Lakedale Road.”

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

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.
