Croydon garage fire: Norbury firefighters tackle Thornton Heath blaze

Norbury fire crews successfully tackled a Croydon garage fire this morning.

Three fire engines were sent to the scene where firefighters extinguished the blaze which started in the early hours of this morning on Brook Road in Thornton Heath.

They were called to the garage at 8am by a neighbour, Mark Webb, who spotted the smoke as he passed by.

He told SW Londoner: “I was walking down and could just see smoke.

“It was like it was full of pyrotechnics – it was just a big popping sound like fireworks.”
