PICTURES: Hampton roof fire under investigation
An attic fire that broke out yesterday afternoon is under investigation.
People rushed from their houses as 35 fire fighters from six engines from Twickenham, Feltham, Kingston and Esher worked to put out the fire in the roof of a house in Wembley Road in Hampton.
No one was injured by the blaze, which broke out at about 2pm and was brought under control by 3.30pm.
Fire fighters stayed on the scene until about 6pm to dampen down the roof of the semi-detached house and the one next door, which was also damaged.
Twickenham station manager Rhodri Horton said: “The fire crews did very well containing the fire the roof.
“They got into the attic and fought the fire from the inside which is how they managed to stop it spreading.”
The homeowner was not in when the fire broke out and neighbours said he may be a builder or interior decorator.
