Enfield industrial site fire: More than 70 firefighters tackle blaze

  • 7-26-2015

More than 70 firefighters tackled a blaze at a north London pallet yard.

The fire on Mollison Avenue in Enfield started at about 10:10 BST and was under control by 14:00, London Fire Brigade (LFB) said.

The yard and 25 vehicles were damaged and thick black smoke could be seen from locations including Canary Wharf, 20 miles (32km) away.

LFB said it was currently "damping down" before an investigation into its cause begins.

A number of gas cylinders on site are being cooled down as some cylinders can explode when exposed to heat, the brigade said.

It added it had received 26 calls from members of the public reporting the incident.
