Fire breaks out at Biggin Hill farm
OVER 70 firefighters fought the blaze after an industrial unit set alight at a farm in the Biggin Hill area last night (March 14).
It is thought some gas cylinders overheated, causing minor explosions and resulting in the fire at Highams Hill Farm, Sheepbarn Lane.
A total of 10 fire engines and 72 firefighters from Biggin Hill, Addington, Croydon Woodside and surrounding fire stations were called to the scene.
The Brigade was called to the blaze at 8.17pm.
No injuries have been reported but a large part of the single storey unit has been damaged by fire.
Fire crews were at the scene throughout this morning, while roads in the area are expected to remain closed until tomorrow.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Brigade’s Fire Investigation Unit and the Metropolitan Police.
