Hadyn Park Road fire

A fire in a flat in the Bush this week revealed the importance of having working smoke detectors.

Two fire engines and around ten firefighters were called to a flat fire in a three floor house on Hadyn Park Road, W12 on Tuesday night Part of the first floor flat was damaged by the fire.

Two men were rescued by firefighters wearing breathing apparatus and a further man left the building before crews arrived.  They were all treated at the scene by London Ambulance Service crews.

Watch manager Peter Morgan from Hammersmith fire station said:

“The house had a smoke alarm but it appeared to be deactivated and therefore it didn’t alert the residents to the fire. It’s vitally important to have a working smoke alarm. If a friend or family member doesn't have one, buy them an alarm for Christmas - it could be the most important present you ever give.” 

The Brigade was called at 2244 and the fire was under control by 2329. Firefighters from Hammersmith fire station were at the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
