The London Fire Brigade received multiple calls to a workshop alight behind a row of shops in Green Lanes, Dagenham, East London at 20:00hrs this evening (10th May 2005). Crews from Dagenham, Ilford, Barking and Hornchurch responded to the incident. Upon the arrival of the LFB Two Women were calling from a window on the first floor above the shop, they were rescued by Crews by ladder. Firefighters wearing Breathing Apparatus then dealt with the blazing workshop which was spreading to adjoining properties. The incident was further complicated by the involvement of asbestos roofing material on the workshop. A restricted zone was set up while Fire Crews dealt with the hazardous asbestos. 6 Pumps, a Fire Rescue Unit, a Command Unit, a Fire Investigation team and Two Senior Officers (one as Hazmat) attended the incident along with Police & London Ambulance. The Fire was brought under control within an hour. The cause is still being investigated.
