London Bridge: Fire causes major disruption at ‘London Bridge’ stations

At 9.29 this morning, the London Fire Brigade received its first call about the incident.

Around 40 firefighters were dispatched, but ten additional engines and 30 additional personnel were eventually requested to the area. Firefighters from the nearby fire stations in Shadwell, Whitechapel, Shoreditch, Dowgate, and other locations are present.

The smoke, which has now seeped into railroad tunnels adjacent to London Bridge station, is being warned against, and locals are being asked to keep their windows and doors closed as a precaution.

After it was discovered that a railway arch was totally on fire, other buildings close to the fire were also evacuated.

Although the London Fire Brigade confirmed that the fire was put out at 11.20 a.m., Southwark Street is still closed between Southwark Bridge Road and Lavington Street while the investigation is ongoing.

While the Jubilee line between Wembley Park and Stanmore is partially halted and experiencing significant delays, the station has been entirely closed.

There have been no recorded injuries, and neither Southwark Underground Station nor London Bridge Station have reopened.

It is anticipated that there will be significant delays between London Bridge and Waterloo East until at least 3 p.m. today.
