London warehouse fire treated as arson

  • 2-23-2015

A fire which destroyed a storage warehouse in south-east London is being treated as arson, police have said. 

Up to 100 firefighters tackled the blaze at industrial units off Yarnton Way in Erith for more than three hours on Saturday morning. 

Two adjacent units and three lorries were also damaged.

Firefighters managed to stop the fire spreading to any residential homes. Met Police said there were no injuries and are appealing for witnesses.

London Fire Brigade said it received more than 50 calls after the fire started just after 02:00 GMT. 

Det Ch Insp Gary Holmes said: "Thankfully no-one was hurt during this incident but if anyone had been in the building there is no doubt they would have been killed.

"The person responsible is still at large and must be caught."
