House Fire – Kensington, London

09.07.13 - House Fire – Kensington, London

Ten fire engines and 72 firefighters and officers were called to a fire at a house under refurbishment on Campden Grove, in Kensington W8.

At the height of the incident the whole of the three storey building was on fire and the building was left gutted by the blaze. Part of the roof of two neighbouring properties were also damaged. London Fire Brigade Station Manager Rhodri Horton, who was at the scene said: “When crews arrived they were faced with a rapidly developing fire affecting the whole of a three storey house under refurbishment. Firefighters worked really hard to bring the fire under control and to prevent it from spreading to neighbouring properties.

Fire crews from North Kensington, Kensington, Chelsea, Hammersmith, Paddington, Chiswick and Knightsbridge fire stations attended the incident. The cause of the fire is not known at this stage and crews are likely to remain at the scene for some time damping down any remaining hot-spots and carrying out salvage work.
