Six adults and three kids were saved by brave London firefighters

Six adults and three kids were saved by brave London fire crews this week after a blaze in a restaurant and apartment building in The Vale, Acton.

Crews wore breathing apparatus to get some of the people out, and they were treated by paramedics for smoke inhalation.

Three adults from a second floor flat and one adult from a first floor flat were also taken to safety by firefighters.

Watch manager Louise De Silvo, who was at the scene, said: “The fire was difficult to locate and our crews faced difficult conditions.”

“Firefighters worked exceptionally hard and prevented the fire from spreading to the flats above the restaurant so we were able to safely evacuate residents.”

Six fire engines and 35 firefighters and officers from Hammersmith, Acton, Ealing, Chiswick, and Kensington fire stations were called to the scene.
