London apartments underground service car park : 5th December 2017


At 07:36 on Tuesday 5th December 2017, London Fire Brigade were called to a report of fire in a 30m x15m underground service car park at an 11 storey apartment block in Lime harbour, E14. This is part of Baltimore Wharf, a site of 12 buildings and the Arena tower of 46 floors. 


The 12 buildings are mixed commercial and residential with some affordable housing. The apartments in this block are fitted with a BS9251 sprinkler system


The fire occurred in a refuse truck that was completing collections in the B2 car park (sub sub basement).


Fortunately the area was covered also by a sprinkler system fed from towns mains. (BS yet to be confirmed) and a sprinkler head above the fire activated controlling the fire. The fire was contained within refuse vehicle due to the sprinkler activation.


4 appliances were mobilised and LFB personnel used 2 hose-reels and one jet to ensure the fire was fully extinguished resulting in  a recycling lorry carrying three commercial wheelie bins being  partly damaged by fire 5%. 


Reports indicate no damage to the underground car-park concrete construction nor apparent smoke damage or water damage from sprinkler activation. There was minimal business disruption.


Crews report that the fire was fully extinguished in 1hr 20 minutes
