Lordship Lane fire destroys restaurant kitchen

Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters were called to a fire at a restaurant with flats above on Lordship Lane last Tuesday.

They were called to the East Dulwich restaurant at 4.50pm on Tuesday, August 21.

Crews from Peckham, New Cross, Forest Hill, and Brixton fire stations had the blaze under control by just after 6pm, but damage has left the restaurant closed until further notice as the kitchen has been destroyed.

According to the Brigade, the fire was discovered when the owner smelt burning and discovered a fire in the kitchen.

The fire is believed to have been caused by vegetable oil being heated and left unattended.

The oil ignited and the fire spread into the extraction system which contained “large amounts of grease deposits.”

Fortunately staff had left the building as the fire spread.
