Two taken to hospital after warehouse fire

  • 2-17-2014

A man and a woman were taken to hospital after a fire at a warehouse in Canning Town, east London.

Just under 100 firefighters were called at 23:07 GMT on Saturday to tackle the blaze in a warehouse on Shipman Road.

The man sustained burns and the woman suffered smoke inhalation.

London Fire Brigade said the fire, which was brought under control at 01:44, affected the roof and a large part of the first and second floors. Crews are still at the scene.

Station manager Philip Morton said: "Firefighters worked hard to bring the fire under control, and crews rescued a man who was later taken to hospital by paramedics.

"The building was badly damaged in the blaze and fire investigators are now looking into what caused it."
