Deptford man escapes industrial blaze
A BLAZE on a Deptford industrial site needed to be tackled by 35 firefighters last night (October 3), who rescued a man from the second-floor window.
The fire happened at a three-storey industrial building with offices on Juno Way at around 9.25pm last night.
A man was rescued from the second floor suffering from slight smoke inhalation and was treated at the scene by London Ambulance Service crews.
Six workers had evacuated the building before the brigade arrived and a small part of the first floor was damaged by fire.
Crews from Greenwich, Deptford, New Cross, Old Kent Road, Brixton and West Norwood fire stations went to the scene and battled flames for just over an hour.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
