Fire breaks out at Dartford water treatment works
A FIRE broke out at a water treatment works in Dartford yesterday afternoon.
Firefighters were called to the three-storey Thames Water owned building in Home Gardens at 5.30pm after smoke was seen coming from the roof.
They spent nearly two hours at the scene and used breathing apparatus and a hose reel to extinguish the flames and a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the smoke.
Crews left the scene at around 7.15pm.
A Thames Water representative was also called to the scene but the fire did not disrupt the water supply.
