A FIRE damaged half of an abandoned warehouse next to Totteridge and Whetstone tube station last night.
Fire crews were called to the blaze on Allum Way, off Totteridge Lane at around 9.30pm and the fire was under control by 1am, they finally left the scene at 11am.
Billowing smoke and flames could be seen emerging from the building for miles around, with many residents fearing it was the London Underground station next door that was ablaze.
The building was said locally to have previously been used by Planston Works, as a packaging factory, and to have been derelict for many years.
The cause of the fire, which damaged half of the derelict single-storey building, is under investigation.

according to LFB cuts plan, ’the Brigade would maintain its existing London-wide attendance target of getting a first fire engine to an emergency within an average six minutes and the second fire engine, if needed, within eight minutes.’ As you can read above, it took 20 minutes to the 1st machine to arrive. Well done Boris, well done Barnt Council....
