Firefighters Contain Blaze at Greater London Self-Storage Facility


A quick response from firefighters thwarted significant fire damage at a U.K. self-storage facility in Greater London Monday evening.

After an alarm sounded at 7:30 p.m. local time, black smoke began filling the hallways surrounding the offices at Big Yellow Self Storage, located about 9 miles southwest of central London in New Malden. Using a thermal image camera, the firefighters went to work quickly and were able to contain the fire so that only 10 percent of the office was damaged. The source does not specify whether or not individual units or tenants' contents were damaged.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
