FIRE APPEAL: Police seeking information after Borehamwood flat blaze

 Published on: 16th August 2022   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Officers investigating a fire at a block of flats in Borehamwood on Friday, August 12 are appealing for information and footage that may have been taken.

A fire was started close to the flats in Balmoral Drive just before 3.30pm. The fire spread to the main building causing extensive damage to a number of flats.

Detective Inspector Beth Hanna said: “Residents from all 21 flats have been placed in temporary accommodation which is incredibly distressing and will, of course, have a deep impact.

“We believe a bonfire started close to the flats was the cause of the fire, however we are fully investigating the circumstances of what happened, and I would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the events leading up to it. I would also be keen to receive any footage of the fire that people may have captured as this would also be useful to the investigation.”

Anyone with information is asked to please email
