Huge fire at Chiswick riverside offices

Posted on by Offices.org.uk

70 FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze at offices in Chiswick in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The first floor and roof of the building at Strand-on-the-Green, overlooking the Thames, were badly damaged in the fire. Nobody was injured in the huge fire although a dozen local residents were evacuated for their safety.

The riverside offices, close to Kew Bridge, are the west London offices of talent agency James Grant Group.

A statement on the James Grant website said:

“We are sad to report that in the early hours of [Sunday] morning a fire broke out at our Kew Bridge office, London, causing serious damage to the building… Our sincere thanks go out to the emergency services who attended the site. They did an outstanding job of controlling the fire and limiting the damage as much as possible.”

Crews from Acton, Chiswick, Richmond, Heston, Ealing, Kingston, Kensington, Southall and Hammersmith fire stations attended the fire and had it under control by 4.30am.

Station Manager Carl St Paul who was at the scene said: “Our crews worked extremely hard in challenging conditions to get this fire under control and to stop it from spreading to neighbouring properties. Thankfully no-one was inside the office building when the fire broke out but around 12 people from homes close by were evacuated during the incident as a precaution.”
