Fire damages garages
HAYES: Thirty-one firefighters tackled a blaze in Hayes on Friday last week.
The crews from Hillingdon, Southall and Northolt set up an exclusion zone near the garage of a house at the junction of Elers Road and Mildred Avenue which was well alight and contained gas cyclinders including one with highly flammable acetylene.
A car in the garage was badly damaged in the fire and the garage of a neighbouring house, also containing a car, was damaged too.
London Fire Brigade said the cause of the fire was probably an electrical fault.
