PICTURED: Smoke billows across Orpington - but there was no fire
SMOKE billowed across Orpington yesterday evening – but firefighters say there was not actually a fire.
These pictures show the smoke-filled sky from Poverest Road and were taken at around 5.50pm.
Firefighters say they received calls from the public at 5.45pm reporting a fire to them in Cray Avenue.
However it turned out the smoke was actually appearing from an industrial site at the Nugent Industrial Park.
A London Fire Brigade spokesman said: “People thought it was a fire but was not.
“Sometimes buildings can vent their steam and smoke and depending on the atmosphere and temperatures it can look a lot worse than it actually is.”
