VIDEO: Fire on Churchill Ave


Four fire crews were called to a block of flats in Churchill Ave at around 5.45 on Friday night.

The middle flat of three was ablaze. Firefighters had the fire under control by around 6.30pm.

A local neighbor living two doors down, who did not wish to be named, says she was alerted to the fire by the noise it created.

“It started with an explosion and it was fast.”

She says she had spoken with the occupants of the rear flat to make sure they were okay.

“There was smoke damage in back but I’m not sure about the front. It didn’t look good,” she says. “The fire has affected two family’s plus [the occupant’s] own.”

The fire is not being treated as suspicious.
