Fire destroys garden shed in Cricklewood

Fire crews successfully prevented an explosion after a garden shed caught on fire in Cricklewood.

The outhouse in Cotswold Gardens was completely destroyed by the blaze but firefighters managed to cool down two cylinders inside the wood structure to stop them from blowing up.

It took just under 90 minutes to bring the blaze under control on Tuesday evening.
