(ROMANIA) JUST IN: A blaze that broke out in a hospital Friday in the eastern city of Constanta has claimed at least nine lives, the authorities have said, making it the country’s third fatal hospital fire in under a year #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.02: Firefighters put out the blaze at around 8am GMT on Friday at the Hospital for Infectious Diseases, with additional teams from other districts brought in to help extinguish the fire. All patients were safely evacuated….

#AceDailyNews says according to a report by RT Images uploaded to social media purported to show plumes of thick smoke spewing from the building, which housed 113 patients at the time, 10 of whom were in intensive care according to

The fire in the port city of Constanta marks Romania’s third such blaze in under a year. In January, a ward in Bucharest’s Matei Bals Hospital went up in flames, killing at least five people. The blaze in the capital prompted President Klaus Iohannis to call for urgent reform to his country’s underdeveloped healthcare infrastructure, vowing that such a tragedy must never happen again.

Last November, 10 patients died after a fire engulfed an intensive care unit for Covid cases in Piatra Neamt, in the country’s north.

Romania, which is home to some 19 million people, ranks second-lowest for vaccinations against coronavirus across the 27-member state EU bloc, with only around 28% of its population having so far been immunized.

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, the Eastern European nation has registered more than 1.2 million cases and 37,041 Covid-related fatalities.

(INDONESIA) JUST IN: A fire at a jail in Banten province has killed at least 41 people and injured 80 others #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Sept.09: Law and human rights minister Yasonna Laoly said two foreigners from South Africa and Portgual, respectively, were among those killed…..

#AceDailyNews says that a fire breaks out at Indonesian prison as inmates sleep, killing 41 including two foreigners Government spokeswoman Rika Aprianti said the fire at Tangerang prison broke out just after 1:00am on Wednesday (local time)…………..The other inmates, most of whom were sleeping, were evacuated from the facility………..The situation is now under control,” Jakarta Police Chief Fadil Imran said.

At least 41 inmates were killed and 80 hospitalised, eight of them with severe burns, he said.

“The cause of the fire is under investigation,” Ms Aprianti said.

The blaze started at Block C of Tangerang prison, which is located on the outskirts of Jakarta and used for drug offenders.

Hundreds of police and soldiers were deployed to take control at prison, which was designed to house 1,225 inmates but has more than 2,000, Ms Aprianti said.

Block C was crammed full with 122 convicts when the fire occurred.

She said the fire was extinguished after a few hours and all the victims were moved to a local hospital.

There were indications an electrical fault may have caused the fire, Mr Imran said.

“Our initial assumption is that the fire was caused by an electrical short circuit,” he said.

“It lasted for approximately two hours and has now been handled by firefighters, prison officers and the police.”

Jailbreaks and riots that lead to prisoner injuries are common in Indonesia, where overcrowding has become a problem.

As of March 2020, the country had almost 270,000 inmates, more than double its total capacity of 133,000, according to Human Rights Watch.

Large numbers of people have been arrested in the nation’s war on illegal drugs but most of Indonesia’s prisons struggle with poor funding.

(LEAMINGTON SPA,UK..) JUST IN: Police have launched a desperate search for a missing person after explosions were reported and a major fire broke out in an industrial area this morning #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Aug.27: One person remains unaccounted for at present after local businesses, homeowners and anyone in the vicinity were moved on for their safety, per a Warwickshire Police spokesperson. …..

#AceDailyNews says a huge fire sends clouds of smoke into sky over Leamington Spa as firefighters tackle the blaze as shocking pictures showed apocalyptic-like scenes as huge plumes of black smoke turned the sky black with ash and could be seen towering for miles above the Warwickshire town.

The Rosalind Franklin megalab based in Juno Drive, Leamington, a destination for tens of thousands of national PCR tests, has been evacuated as a precaution – as eyewitnesses report strong chemical-like smells in the area.

The blaze ripped through Leeson Polyurethanes Ltd according to Warwickshire Police, where a 70m evacuation radius has since been erected.

Several major roads are closed and residents are advised to stay indoors around Juno Drive, Leamington after the emergency services dashed to the scene to tackle the blaze.

Businesses and homeowners were told to keep their doors and windows shut as a precaution, as a 70metre evacuation radius was enforced around the scene. 

Eyewitnesses say they are experiencing ‘chemical smells’ amid reports of people being sick in the area, as Public Health West Midlands issued a health warning to locals.  

Local residents said they heard a series of bangs in quick succession as small ‘explosions’ were reported throughout the morning.

Others were handed masks and told to keep them on for their safety, as debris, including black polystyrene, could be found in the air and on the ground.

Jan Butler, 52, explained: ‘I think the company involved hasn’t been open that long and its all industrial units around there.

‘But its still rather close to the town centre and I just hope everybody is okay because it looks absolutely devastating.

‘The smoke has just engulfed everything, people are having to leave their homes, it’s crazy really.

‘I’ve stayed well away but I have friends nearer who say there’s been a strong chemical-like smell coming from it as well.’

Resident Ben Coleman was working from home when he realised there was an odour and explosives sounds in the background. 

He told the BBC: ‘There’s a bit of a smell. I heard small explosions, it was a few, like, pops.’

Warwickshire Police said properties within the vicinity of Juno Drive are being evacuated as 12 fire engines and two aerial appliances were rushed to tackle the blaze.

The emergency services, including an air ambulance, have descended on the industrial building in Juno Drive, which houses a number of factories and a laboratory
Local Labour MP Matt Western said he has heard the fire may involve chemicals from a plastics business unit.

Another anonymous witness, speaking to the Mirror, compared the jaw-dropping scene to something produced by a Hollywood blockbuster. 

‘It’s like something out of a disaster movie,’ they said.

‘You can taste the acrid smoke and smell it. It’s getting bigger and seems to be heading towards us. 

‘We can hear the emergency services and have heard the air ambulance.’

Residents said they were startled by a series of explosions which sounded ‘like bombs going off’ as the blaze broke out while others reported ‘strong chemical-like smells’.

Stephen Morris, 48, who lives in the town, said: ‘I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. We were in the garden earlier and heard what sounded like a bomb go off.

‘It was like a loud pop. The next thing you know, there’s a massive cloud of black smoke rising into the sky, it was like something from that film Independence Day.

‘It’s just lingering over the entire town now and I’ve never known so much police and fire activity here, they must have sent every appliance they have to it.

‘I heard that people were getting sick as the smoke is toxic.

‘It’s quite frightening, I have a friend who lives 20 miles away and he said he could see it from down there.

‘He thought it was a cloud at first, it’s that big.

‘The scale of it is just enormous.’

Local Labour MP Matt Western said he has heard the fire may involve chemicals from a plastics business unit. 

He said: ‘Massive fire on Tachbrook Ind Est. 

‘Extremely serious. Hearing it may involve chemicals from plastics business unit. Please close windows and stay indoors. Will update as I hear more.’

Anyone living within 70 metres of the site are being urged to keep windows and doors closed.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said it has two paramedic officers and a Hazardous Area Response Team at the scene.

The cause of the fire has not yet been made public, but it is understood to have broken out at an industrial premise approximately 50m by 30m. 

Some people reported seeing plumes of smoke from as far as 30 miles away at the Silverstone race circuit in Towcester, Northamptonshire. 

Video footage from the area showed black smoke as loud explosions can be heard going off in the distance above the town’s Gurdwara Sahib in the centre of Leamington Spa.  

Eyewitnesses are reporting several people being sick in the aftermath as there are unconfirmed reports of the smoke being toxic.

They tweeted: ‘Substances in smoke can worsen health problems like asthma & heart conditions so people should carry their medication if near the fire in Leamington Spa.

‘Smoke can irritate airways/skin/eyes & cause coughing/wheezing breathlessness chest pain. Get medical advice if affected.’

Coast Guard rescues 3 from boat fire 150 miles south of Costa Rica

Editor’s Note: Click on images above to download full-resolution version.

The three mariners abandoned the boat and were clinging to a buoy in the water while maintaining communication with the vessel administrator via satellite phone.

Watchstanders utilized the automated mutual-assistance vessel rescue (AMVER) system and contacted the motor vessel Avra GR crew, located approximately 58 miles from the Baula X’s last known position, who agreed to assist and proceeded toward  the mariners.

The Coast Guard Cutter Northland (WMEC 904) crew dispatched their MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew at 4 a.m. Wednesday to search for the crew of the Baula X and located the mariners at their last known position.

Once on scene, the Northland launched their 26-foot Over-the-Horizon small boat crew who retrieved all three mariners at 5:40 a.m. and transferred them in good condition to the AMVER vessel Avra GR.

RCC Costa Rica is coordinating with the Avra GR crew to transfer the three mariners back to Costa Rica.

The AMVER system, sponsored by the Coast Guard, is a unique, computer-based and voluntary global ship reporting system used worldwide by search and rescue authorities to arrange for assistance to people in distress at sea. On any day there are more than 7,000 ships available to carry out search and rescue services.

(LONDON) JUST IN: Ocado has cancelled thousands of orders after a fire at a fulfilment centre in south-east on Friday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.19: About 800 staff had to be evacuated and firefighters worked through the night to contain the incident: It is the second fire involving robots at Ocado. Its Andover facility burned down in 2019 after an electrical fault.

#AceDailyNews says that thousands of orders have been cancelled after Ocado robot fire the online grocer said the blaze started when three of the robots that help pick its groceries collided at the Erith site

Robots at Ocado's warehouse in Erith
At Ocado’s warehouses, hundreds of robots zip around a grid, collecting groceries and bringing them to members of staff who will pack them into boxes.

Shares in the company slipped by about 3% in early trade on Monday.

Ocado handles up to 150,000 orders a week at the Erith warehouse.

The company said the fire would cause “disruption to operations” but that it was “working to restore normal service as soon as possible”. 

“We expect the facility to begin operating within the coming week and thank customers whose orders are affected for their patience.

“We would like to also thank the London Fire Brigade and all the other emergency services for their hard work and professionalism in dealing with this incident.”

Getty ImagesOcado was the UK’s third largest online grocer last year

It said no one had been injured in the fire and all its staff were safe. The damage is limited to a small section of its warehouse, it added, although it could not say when the site would reopen. 

The retailer has contacted all affected customers, but there was a mixed reaction on social media. 

One angry customer tweeted: “I’m sorry that there is a fire and glad that it appears no one is hurt, but why do I have to find out on twitter?”

She added: “This is the 3rd or 4th order in a row that has been messed up.”

Others expressed support for the firm, with one tweeting: “Whilst it may be inconvenient, some more compassion for the business and staff affected might be nice!”

Ocado’s fulfilment centres are highly automated. 

At Erith, hundreds of robots zip around a grid, collecting groceries and bringing them to members of staff who will pack them into boxes, which are then loaded on to trucks for delivery.

However, a fault in a battery charging unit caused a robot to catch light at Ocado’s Andover distribution centre in 2019. 

The site, which processed 30,000 orders a week at the time, burned for four days and was completely destroyed. It has since been rebuilt.Flames and smoke were seen from miles around during the fire in 2019

Ocado, which was the UK’s third biggest online grocer last year, has seen huge growth during the pandemic, with sales up 40% in the first three months of the year.

It also continues to strike technology licensing partnerships with grocery chains around the world, including Groupe Casino in France and Kroger in the US.

(BANGLADESH) LATEST: Police have arrested eight people Saturday on murder charges in connection with a factory fire that killed at least 52 people, many of whom were trapped inside by an illegally locked door, a senior police official said #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.11: The blaze began Thursday night at the five-story Hashem Foods Ltd. factory in Rupganj, just outside the capital Dhaka, sending huge clouds of black smoke billowing into the sky. Police discovered piles of bodies Friday afternoon after the fire was extinguished.

#AceDailyNews says that police in Bangladesh have arrested 8-people on murder charges after a factory fire has killed at least 52-people on Thursday night according to AP report

Smoke rises from a food and beverage factory in Rupganj, outside Dhaka, Bangladesh, Friday, July 9, 2021. At least 52 people died in a huge blaze that engulfed a food and beverage factory outside Bangladesh’s capital, fire officials said Friday, in the latest industrial disaster to hit the South Asian nation.

“We have arrested them for murder charges,” Jayedul Alam, police superintendent for Narayanganj district, told The Associated Press by phone. “They are in our custody now.”

Home Minister Asaduzzman Khan said that among those detained is the managing director of Sajeeb Group, which owns the factory.

The minister did not provide further details, but said those responsible would be punished.

“It’s a murder,” Khan told reporters as he visited the factory site Saturday.

By Saturday evening, a court in Dhaka allowed all eight suspects to remain in police custody for four days for interrogation.

Bangladesh has a tragic history of industrial disasters, including factories catching fire with workers locked inside. Big international brands, which employ tens of thousands of low-paid workers in Bangladesh, have come under heavy pressure to improve factory conditions.

In similar cases, factory owners have faced culpable homicide charges for negligence, and it’s illegal for a factory to lock its exits when workers are inside during production hours.

The main exit of the factory that caught fire Thursday was locked from the inside, a Fire Service and Civil Defense official said, and many of those who died were trapped.

One of them was 23-year-old Rima Akter, who made desperate calls to her family as the fire engulfed the factory.

On Saturday, her mother and other family members struggled to identify the young woman’s remains in the morgue at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital.

“We have checked 36 body bags, but it is very difficult to identify her,” her brother-in-law Arafat Rahman said.

Her mother, Josna Begum, cried as officials tried to reassure several families waiting outside the hospital that their loved ones’ bodies would be returned once DNA tests were completed. Forensic experts worked to identify the dead, taking DNA samples from victims’ family members, and by late Saturday afternoon samples from 33 of the deceased had been collected, officials at the hospital said.

“My daughter worked to provide for her educational expenses. She was attending online classes and exams. I have no one else in the world … what is there left for me to do now?” Josna Begum said.

Prova Barman, father of Kompa Rani Barman, who died in the fire, spoke to reporters in front of the factory Saturday.

“My daughter’s body was found over here. She was on the third floor. The supervisor locked in many girls there, including my daughter, during the fire. Many girls could not escape after the gate was locked,” he said.

Other workers jumped from the upper floors, and at least 26 suffered injuries, the United News of Bangladesh agency reported Friday.

The factory is a subsidiary of Sajeeb Group, a Bangladeshi company that produces juice under Pakistan’s Lahore-based Shezan International Ltd. According to the group’s website, the company exports its products to a number of countries including Australia, the United States, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Bhutan, Nepal and nations in the Middle East and Africa.

Despite the South Asian nation’s rapid economic growth, corruption and lax enforcement have resulted in many deaths over the years.

In 2012, about 117 workers died when they were trapped behind locked exits in a garment factory in Dhaka.

The following year, more than 1,100 people were killed when a building that housed five garment factories collapsed, becoming the country’s worst industrial disaster.

Investigators initially said those accused of wrongdoing would be charged with culpable homicide, which carries a maximum punishment of seven years in jail. They later changed the charges to murder due to the gravity of the disaster.

However, powerful factory owners often take advantage of the slow pace of the legal system, dragging out the process for years. The murder cases in the 2013 factory collapse are still ongoing.

The tragedy did spark tougher safety rules for the garment industry, but many other sectors fail to maintain safety standards and disasters have continued.

In February 2019, a blaze ripped through a 400-year-old area cramped with apartments, shops and warehouses in the oldest part of Dhaka, killing at least 67 people.

(DUBAI) JUST IN: A fiery explosion on a container ship has sent a shock wave through and damaged one of the world’s largest ports #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – July.10: The explosion unleashed a shock wave through the skyscraper-studded city of Dubai, causing walls and windows to shake in neighbourhoods as far as 25 kilometres away.

#AceDailyNews – DUBAI: Explosion on container ship felt by residents 25 kilometres away as the blaze sent up giant orange flames on a vessel at the crucial Jebel Ali Port, which is the busiest port in the Middle East and sits on the eastern side of the Arabian Peninsula.

Play Video. Duration: 47 seconds
Firefighters work to extinguish the inferno on the ship.

Panicked residents filmed from their high-rises as a fiery ball illuminated the night sky.

The blast was powerful enough to be seen from space by satellite.

There were no immediate reports of casualties at the port.

Dubai’s civil defence teams said they had brought the fire under control and started the “cooling process” roughly two-and-a-half hours after the blast.

Authorities posted to social media video of firefighters dousing giant shipping containers.

The glow of the blaze remained visible in the background as civil defence crews worked to contain the fire.

The extent of damage caused to the sprawling port and surrounding cargo was not immediately clear.

Footage shared on social media in the aftermath showed charred containers, ashes and littered debris.

Dubai authorities told the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV the crew had evacuated in time and the fire appeared to have started in one of the containers holding “flammable material”.

Seeking to downplay the explosion, Mona al-Marri, director-general of the Dubai Media Office, told Al-Arabiya the incident could have happened “anywhere in the world” and authorities were investigating the cause.

The Jebel Ali Port, at the northern end of Dubai, is the largest man-made deep-water harbour in the world and it serves cargo from the Indian subcontinent, Africa and Asia.

The port is not only a critical global cargo hub, but a lifeline for Dubai and the United Arab Emirates, serving as the point of entry for essential imports.

Dubai authorities did not identify the stricken ship beyond saying it was a small vessel with a capacity of 130 containers.

Ship tracker MarineTraffic showed a fleet of small support vessels surrounding a docked container ship called the Ocean Trader flagged in Comoros.

Footage from the scene rebroadcast by the UAE’s state-run WAM news agency showed firefighters hosing down a vessel bearing paint and a logo that corresponds to the Ocean Trader, which is operated by the Dubai-based Inzu Ship Charter.

The Ocean Trader docked at Jebel Ali Port at midday on Wednesday.

Ship-tracking data showed the vessel had been sailing up and down the coast of the UAE since April.

The United Nations ship database identified the vessel’s owners as Sash Shipping corporation.

Sash and Inzu Ship Charter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

(LONDON) JUST IN: LFB REPORT: Around 70-firefighters are battling a blaze at the ‘Elephant & Castle” that has caused a huge plume of smoke to billow into the sky above #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – June.28: London Fire Brigade (LFB) said three commercial units were alight along with four cars and a telephone box.

London Fire Brigade. At ‘Elephant & Castle Fire: Huge blaze at railway arches and about 70 firefighters are battling the blaze at some railway arches near Elephant and Castle station according to BBC News

@stevendicostaA huge plume of smoke is visible above south London

Local residents have been warned to keep doors and windows closed and all trains have been stopped from running through the area.

Ten fire engines were called to the scene at about 13:45 BST, with the fire thought to have started in some garages close to the railway station.

Some people living in the area reported hearing several explosions.

Sara Scarpa, 25, who lives in nearby apartment building Hurlock Heights, said: “We opened the window for a sec as you could hear people shouting, and we smelt something very, very strong.

“The smoke (was) dying down a little… we heard an explosion and now it started again,” she said.

@strutcakesThree commercial units are alight, firefighters say

Alex Lecki, who works in a restaurant in Elephant and Castle, said his entire building had been evacuated.

“We saw smoke billowing out… The smoke pillar started enveloping the apartment blocks as well and we kept hearing intermittent bangs,” the 30-year-old said.

He added that police had “indicated it could be some time” before they would be allowed to return.

Ben LovellLFB says it has received nearly 50 calls about the blaze

The Met said “significant road closures” were in place and people had been advised to avoid the area.

(LANCASHIRE, U.K) JUST IN: A child has died and four adults injured in a massive fire in Heysham with 10-firefighting crews are fighting the blaze that has collapsed buildings #AceNewsDesk report

HEYSHAM: Child dies and four adults injured in Lancashire explosion: Firefighters, police and ambulances were sent to Mallowdale Avenue in the town in the early hours of Sunday’

Firefighters Working With Blaze

7 minutes ago Firefightets are still searching the scene

Two houses collapsed and serious damage was done to a third property, Lancashire Police said.

A young child died in the blast, which happened at 02:40 BST, and the force said two men and two women had been taken to hospital with injuries.

“We can now confirm that sadly a young child has died as a result of the incident. The family have been informed and our thoughts remain with them at this distressing time,” the force said.Firefighters and ambulances were sent to the scene in the early hours

Two of the people hurt had serious injuries, assistant chief constable Jo Edwards said at a press conference at the scene earlier.

The other two are being assessed in hospital.

She said the search and rescue operation is still ongoing but “we believe we have got everybody out”. 

Lancashire Fire said a major incident was declared after it was reported that there has been an explosion at a property on Mallowdale Avenue.One house had collapsed and nearby houses had roof damage

About 30-40 people were evacuated from their homes. Most went to stay with friends and family but the Salt Ayre Leisure Centre is welcoming anyone needing support.

Lancaster City Council leader Erica Lewis said councils would give housing support to those affected and had opened a helpline.

She said it was “important we understand how this happened” and the investigation “runs its course”.

One neighbour said it “sounded like a bomb going off”.

“It literally shook the whole bed. We felt like we were going through the floor. 

“We jumped out of bed and we just ran to see what was going on. It’s just awful,” she said.

Dave GuestNeighbours said the explosion “sounded like a bomb going off”

Susan Faulkner, 74, who lives further down the avenue, said she was still “shaken” by the incident.

“I woke up with this huge bang and I thought someone was breaking into my house… I’m still quite shaken by it. I’ve never experienced that before.

Ms Faulkner said that her own property and others close by had been damaged.

“It was quite a blast, I live quite way down there and part of my side door was blown in, my next door neighbour’s plates were smashed,” she said.

“I’ve been very lucky. When I see what those poor souls have had happen to them, it’s devastating. I’m really sad for those people, it’s such a sad thing to happen to them.”Cars and houses were damaged by bricks and debris from the blast

Dan Knowles, who lives four streets away from the explosion, said he thought there had been an earthquake.

“We immediately checked on our kids and got back in bed. We then heard sirens and my wife checked Facebook.

“We stayed indoors and switched everything off at the source and then sat up all night worrying.”

Another neighbour said he had been helping out “making brews” since being woken by the blast.

Matt House, from North West Ambulance Service, said he had not seen an explosion like this in the UK during his 20 years of service.

Ben Norman, assistant chief fire officer, said there would be “untold” impact on fire officers working at the scene.

He said at its peak, 80 fire officers were at the scene with two engines pulled in from Cumbria and emergency service workers “took great risks”.

He added: “Some of those are staff that respond from home or a workplace. They’re on-call firefighters so they go back into this community.

“They live within it, they work within it, their families are within it.”

Local MP David Morris, who represents Morecambe and Lunesdale, thanked the emergency services on Twitter and said: “My thoughts and prayers are with all of the families on Mallowdale Avenue”.

Police said they were working with gas service engineers to make the area safe and they advised people to stay away. 

Electricity North West, which supplies electricity across the north west of England, said on Twitter that engineers were removing supplies for safety.

The company could not confirm how many properties would be affected, or for how long.

(LONDON) JUST IN: A devastating fire at a historic boatyard has destroyed a yacht that was used to rescue troops from Dunkirk during the Second World War #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – May.04: A devastating fire at a historic boatyard has destroyed a yacht that was used to rescue troops from Dunkirk during the Second World War:

Historic ship used to save people from Dunkirk in WW2 destroyed in boatyard fire: ‘The Lady Gay was lost in the blaze on Platts Eyot in Hampton, south west London, on Monday, according to the Association of Dunkirk Little Ships’

Tues.4 May 2021 10:26 am

Two other vessels, also used in the famous rescue mission, were moved to safety as the fire tore through two boat sheds.

A statement from the association confirmed the loss of the boat – known as a Dunkirk Little Ship or DLS – this morning. 

It said: ‘It is with great sadness that yesterday May 3rd 2021 Dunkirk Little Ship Lady Gay was destroyed in a blaze at the old Thornycroft sheds on Platts Eyot, Hampton. 

‘DLS Mary Irene and Elvin, who were also on site, were able to be moved to safety but today our thoughts are with Lady Gay’s owners in their loss of a truly wonderful little ship.’

Lady Gay, a 34ft Motor Yacht, was originally built in 1934 for Lord Alfred Dunhill and cost £1500. 

She was one of hundreds of small boats used to take troops off the beaches at Dunkirk and return them to the UK after the Nazis invaded France in 1940.

It’s understood she was on the slipway of Otter Marine, having just had some restoration work completed to get her ready for the coming season afloat.

Some people were seen attempting to rescue the small boats as the fire raged around them yesterday afternoon.

Firefighters managed to bring the blaze on the island in the River Thames under control late on Monday night. 

Boats have been built at Platts Eyot since 1868 and the sheds that have been destroyed were Grade II listed because of their historical importance. 

Crews were called soon before 5.15pm to reports of two industrial units on fire, London Fire Brigade (LFB) said in a statement.

Some 15 fire engines were at the scene on Monday evening, with crews forced to carry their equipment to the blaze by hand as the island can only be accessed via a footbridge.

Footage from the incident showed two large buildings at the Hampton Boat Sheds on fire, while subsequent photos showed just the charred remains of the structures.

LFB said its control room had received more than 60 calls about the fire. One man was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
