格倫費爾大廈:兩場大火讓格倫費爾社區難以承受--消防局長

一位消防局長說,星期二倫敦高層塔樓發生的兩起火災,其中一起距離格倫費爾塔不到一英里(1.6公里),將使 "當地社區難以目睹"。

在倫敦西部牧羊人布什(Shepherd's Bush)的Queensdale Crescent的一棟大樓里,可以看到濃煙滾滾,60名消防員正在處理這場大火。

2017年的大火奪去了72人的生命,一些倖存者說他們已經無法繼續生活。

倫敦消防隊(LFB)負責消防站的助理專員喬納森-史密斯(Jonathan Smith)說,最近的火災表明,在過去的五年裡,已經取得了改善。

"他說:"我對所有受這些事件影響的人表示同情。"牧羊人布什的Queensdale Crescent的火災離格倫費爾大廈只有幾分鐘的路程,對社區來說,無疑是難以目睹的。

"來自莊園公園格蘭瑟姆路的圖像顯示了第一批到場的消防員所面臨的大火的強度。

"這兩起事件表明,當我們處理涉及多個電話、相關居民和眾多合作機構的高層火災時,我們作為一個組織已經取得了多大的進展。"

史密斯先生說,改進包括LFB正在使用的一項新技術,該技術允許999呼叫者將Queensdale Crescent的火情直播給呼叫處理中心。

他還指出,使用了歐洲最高的64米(210英尺)轉盤梯,並補充說:"我們永遠不會停止從這類事件中學習,我們將繼續努力改進"。

哈默史密斯和富勒姆委員會領導人斯蒂芬-考恩(Stephen Cowan)說,處理這場火災的部分原因是沒有易燃包層,這是與格倫費爾大廈災難的關鍵區別。


Two fires in high-rise London tower blocks on Tuesday, one less than a mile (1.6km) from Grenfell Tower, will have been "difficult for the local community to witness", a fire chief has said.

Plumes of smoke could be seen rising out of a building on Queensdale Crescent, Shepherd's Bush, west London, as 60 firefighters tackled the blaze.

The 2017 fire claimed the lives of 72 people, with some survivors saying they have been unable to move on.

Jonathan Smith, assistant commissioner for fire stations with London Fire Brigade LFB), said the most recent fires showed improvements had been made in the past five years.

"My thoughts are with all affected by those incidents," he said. "The fire in Queensdale Crescent in Shepherd's Bush was minutes away from Grenfell Tower and will have undoubtedly been difficult for the community to witness.

"The images from Grantham Road in Manor Park showed the intensity of the blaze faced by the first firefighters in attendance.

"Both incidents show how far we have come as an organisation when we deal with high-rise fires involving multiple calls, concerned residents and numerous partner agencies."

Mr Smith said improvements included a new technology being used by LFB, which allowed a 999 caller to livestream the Queensdale Crescent fire to the call handling centre.

He also pointed to the use of a 64m (210ft) turntable ladder, the tallest in Europe, adding "we will never stop learning from these type of incidents and we will continue to strive to improve".

Hammersmith and Fulham Council leader Stephen Cowan said the handling of the fire was partly made possible by the lack of flammable cladding, a crucial difference from the Grenfell Tower disaster.
