Fire at The Castle, Harrow on the Hill

fire_engineMore than 30 firefighters tackled a fire in a pub on High Street, Harrow on the Hill this afternoon.

The fire left the second floor living area of the three floor building badly damaged but crews managed to stop the blaze from spreading to the pub itself. Thirty five members of the public and eight members of staff left the building before the Brigade arrived. One member of staff was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation by London Ambulance Service.

Station Manager Simon Tuhill who was at the scene said: “Crews worked really hard in hot and very challenging conditions to bring this fire under control. Thanks to their efforts the fire was confined to the second floor and didn’t spread into the main pub area on the ground floor. The fact that the fire doors upstairs were closed also helped to stop the fire from spreading any further.”

The Brigade was called at 1636 and the fire was under control by 1818. Six fire engines, 35 firefighters and officers from Harrow, Wembley, Northolt and Southall fire stations attended the incident. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
