FIGHTING FIRE: Huge blaze at Stanmore Golf Centre

 Published on: 29th June 2020   |   By: Jason Allen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Fire fighters rushed to a blaze at the Stanmore Golf Centre on Brockley Hill in the early hours of this morning.

Around 70 firefighters and 10 fire engines were called to a fire at the disused golf club on Brockley Hill at around 12.30am.

A derelict two-storey clubhouse and part of the driving range were alight. There were no reports of any injuries.

Station Commander Neil Guyett, who was at the scene, said: “On arrival crews were faced with a well-developed fire, rapidly spreading through the building.

“Firefighters worked hard to bring the fire under control.

“There was a large amount of smoke in the area so local residents and businesses were advised to keep their doors and windows closed.

“The fire is now under control, but crews will be on scene throughout the morning and local road closures remain in place.”

The fire was under control by 0240. Fire crews from Stanmore, Mill Hill, Hendon, Harrow, Barnet and surrounding fire stations were at the scene, along with colleagues from Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
