Charlton fire now under control according to fire brigade

A fire at an industrial unit in Charlton is now under control according to the LFB.

They state “Ten fire engines and around 70 firefighters have been tackling a fire on Penhall Road in Charlton.

“A single-storey derelict warehouse was alight. There have been no reports of any injuries at this time.

“The fire has been producing a significant amount of smoke. Although the fire has now been brought under control, there is still smoke travelling in the local area and people are advised to continue to keep windows and doors closed at this time.

“Two of the Brigade’s 32 metre turntable ladders were called to assist at the scene, including one used as a water tower to help fight the fire from above.

“Road closures remain in place and local traffic is impacted, including on the A206 Woolwich Road in both directions.”

    • I hope everyone in the area is safe including emergency service workers in attendance at the scene and people working nearby on the industrial estate.
      There will need to be am investigation to see why an apparantly empty warehouse caught fire.
