A fault in an electricity meter is believed to have started a fire at a derelict pizza restaurant in East Dulwich last week.
Three fire engines and around fifteen firefighters were called to the empty restaurant in Barry Road last Friday evening at 5.20pm.
No one was injured and only a small part of the building was damaged before the fire was brought under control before 7pm
A small part of a single-storey outbuilding was damaged by fire. There were no reports of any injuries.
Station commander Mark Edwards, who was at the scene, said “Crews arrived to find a smoke logged property and worked quickly to bring the fire under control and confine it to a fuse board.
“There were no working smoke alarms in the property, so crews installed a smoke alarm before leaving.”
