Back gardens in Harrow Weald destroyed by fire

London Fire Brigade rushed to Weald Lane in Harrow Weald on Friday after reports of a large fire that appeared to be coming from a back garden at a property.

Images and footage sent into us showed the fire that started in a back garden shed.


Six fire engines and at least 30 firefighters were sent to tackle the blaze. An eye witness told Harrow Online: “The fire was coming from a shed, it started spreading across into other gardens and the fire brigade had to go through the fences to get to the fire as nobody was home in the property. The fences were mostly destroyed anyway because of the fire. People were panicking as we did not know how far the fire would spread.”

London Fire Brigade said via their website: “Six fire engines and around 40 firefighters were called to reports of sheds alight on Windsor Road in Harrow on Friday.
“A garden shed and the decking at the rear of the property was destroyed by fire and around 10 metres of garden fencing was also damaged by the blaze. Three further garden sheds in the rear gardens of adjacent properties were also destroyed. Firefighters cooled and removed two gas cylinder to an ambient temperature as some cylinders can explode when exposed to heat. One man was treated on scene by London Ambulance Service crews and taken to hospital.

“The Brigade’s 999 Control Officers took 34 calls to the blaze.

“The Brigade was called at 1742 and the fire was under control by 1905. Fire crews from Stanmore, Harrow, Wembley and Northolt fire stations attended the scene.

“The cause of the fire is under investigation”

Thankfully we can confirm that nobody was hurt in the fire.
