Fire at Sainbury’s London warehouse

Scores of firefighters battled a blaze at the Sainsbury’s depot in south London yesterday (May 18).

Seventy firefighters brought the flames under control at the supermarket’s warehouse in Charlton which also destroyed six lorries.

Although the warehouse was a food depot, Sainsbury’s said it was “too early to speculate” about any clothing that may have been damaged.

A spokeswoman from Sainsbury’s said: “We can confirm that there was a fire at our Thameside depot on Monday afternoon. Everyone was evacuated safely and all colleagues have been accounted for. We are assessing the damage to our distribution centre, which serves a number of our London convenience stores, and will work hard to ensure that any impact on their deliveries is minimised.”
