In a swift response to reports of flooding at Wembley Brook, Tokyngton Avenue in Wembley, five fire engines and approximately 35 firefighters from Wembley, North Kensington, and Park Royal fire stations sprung into action on Tuesday.
The incident, which caused water damage to several residential properties along the road, prompted crews to take immediate safety precautions.
London Fire Brigade, via their official Twitter account, confirmed that five engines rushed to the scene, stating, “Five fire engines and around 35 firefighters responded to reports of flooding in Wembley last night when Wembley Brook began to overflow.”
Upon arrival, firefighters quickly isolated the electricity in affected properties to ensure the safety of residents. Their primary focus then shifted towards pumping water out of the flooded buildings, utilising suction hose and a High Volume Pumping unit.
This specialised equipment allowed the firefighters to efficiently remove large volumes of water from the affected premises.
The incident unfolded at approximately 19:12, when Control Officers were first notified of the flooding. Through their tireless efforts, the firefighters successfully brought the situation under control by 23:48, safeguarding the affected properties and their residents.
