Residents flee as fires break out in Crouch End flats
Firefighters rescued more than a dozen people from two fires in Crouch End and Hornsey earlier this week.
Just before 11pm on Monday (January 2), two men and two women were rescued from a basement flat in Ferme Park Road, Crouch End, after a fire broke out believed to have been caused by an electrical fault in a fuse box.
All four residents were treated for smoke inhalation by an ambulance crew, the fire brigade confirmed.
Hornsey fire station watch manager Robert Haynes said: “The building had some smoke alarms but unfortunately not in every flat and therefore not all residents were alerted properly. It is very important that at least one smoke alarm is in each flat.”
The next night (Tuesday, January 3), ten firefighters evacuated eight adults and a child from a Boyton Road flat on the Campsbourne Estate in Hornsey, when a fire broke out in an underground car park.
