Firefighters tackle Edgware pub blaze

Firefighters have successfully tackled a blaze at the Lansdowne bar on Burnt Oak Broadway in Edgware this afternoon.

Six fire engines and 35 firefighters attended to the fire after a call to the London Fire Brigade was made shortly after 12 noon. It was brought under control just after 2pm.

At one point, 60% of the pub's roof was on fire according to a spokesman for the London Fire Brigade.

Station manager Chris Frewin who was at the scene, said: "The fire was affecting the roof and the first floor, both of which were both destroyed. The initial crew made a good attack on the fire when they arrived. The structure and age of the building made the incident challenging, but crews worked hard to bring the fire under control."

Three people left the building before the brigade arrived and firefighters evacuated 20 children and adults from an adjacent primary school as a precaution. No injuries were reported.

Burnt Oak Broadway faced heavy traffic and vehicles were diverted away from the scene.
