Fire destroys Kwik Fit centre in London
London Fire Brigade (LFB) reports that a “single storey warehouse was destroyed” during a blaze at a Kwik Fit outlet in London. Ten fire engines and around 70 firefighters from the East Ham, Ilford, Stratford, Plaistow, Leytonstone, Barking and Poplar fire stations were called out on Tuesday evening. Firefighters battled the blaze for more than an hour before bringing it under control, their job made more difficult by gas cylinders that exploded due to the heat.
The fire caused extensive damage to the Manor Park-East Ham branch of Kwik Fit, which is located on the corner of High Street North and Monega Road. LFB says the cause of the fire is now under investigation.
