Fire Explodes Near South London Rail Station

A fire broke out near the Elephant and Castle rail station in south London on June 28, setting three “commercial units,” six cars, railway arches, and a telephone box alight, according to the London Fire Brigade.

Over 100 firefighters and 15 engines arrived at the scene to assist, and Station Commander James Ryan asked people to avoid the area and keep their windows and doors closed while crews work to take care of the incident.

Although the fire is under control, significant road closures are still in place for the area and the Metropolitan Police Service is still looking into what started the fire. Credit: Gavin Mulheron via Storyful
