Fire at Beddington sewage works
22 August 2012
Fifteen fire engines and around 75 firefighters were called to a fire in a single storey building at Beddington sewage works, near Croydon yesterday evening.
A large part of the building and its roof were damaged in the blaze and at the height of the fire a large plume of smoke meant residents living nearby were being advised to keep their doors and windows shut. The smoke has now cleared and residents can open their doors and windows again.
The Brigade was called at 1834 and the fire was under control by 0434. Fire crews from Wallington, Croydon, Norbury, Wimbledon, Tooting, Sutton, Wallington, Mitcham, New Malden, West Norwood and Addington fire stations attended the incident. Two fire engines remain at the scene damping down the fire this morning. The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.
