Watford Police, Hertfordshire Fire, and Rescue Service, and Paradigm Housing hosted a community engagement event following the Adams Court fire.

The community engagement event yesterday (August 4) was set up following three fires in the area within the last month, Cow Lane, on July 10, The Abbey View tower block on July 12, and Adams Court, on August 1.

Residents could speak with the organisations with any worries or questions they had about the fires or their safety.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses and information following an arson in Watford.

Police were called to Adams Court, Cezanne Road, at around 9.50pm last night (Monday 1 August) to reports of a fire. Officers attended, alongside the fire service.

A number of properties were evacuated whilst the emergency services worked to extinguish the fire and establish where it had originated.

It was later established that the fire, which is believed to be deliberate at this time, was set in the communal area of a block of flats. A scene guard was put in place, and officers remained at the address overnight.

One person was taken to the hospital for treatment for smoke inhalation. No one sustained any serious injuries.
