PUBLISHED: 09:27 14 June 2013 | UPDATED: 09:27 14 June 2013

Firefighters are treating a “quite severe” fire in a Hainault garage last night as accidental.

Fire crews were called to the blaze in the garage at the rear of a home in Saltash Road at around midnight.

It was locked so firefighters had to break in before they brought the fire under control.

They remained on the scene for two-and-a-half hours.

A firefighter from Hainault fire station, who did not want to be named, said the garage was “badly damaged” and a neighbouring garage was smoke damaged.

No-one had to be evacuated from the home.
