Fire-fighters rushed to Station Road last night to rescue woman and three Algerian Shepherds

A woman and her three dogs had to be pulled out of a burning building following a fire in Harlesden last night.

Two fire engines and around 10 fire-fighters attended the blaze at a house in Station Road at around 9pm.

The fire, which was believed to have been caused by cooking, forced the woman and her three Algerian Shepherd Dogs to be pulled from the property.

The woman suffered from smoke inhalation and was treated on the scene by London Ambulance Service while the dogs were taken care of by the RSPCA.

The fire was put out at around 9.40pm

Speaking after the blaze, a spokesperson from the London Fire Brigade issued a warning and said cooking fires account for nearly a third of all fires in London homes.

He added: “Never leave your cooking unattended and be extra careful when cooking with oil.

“If you have a fire in your kitchen, do not attempt to fight it yourself - and never put water on a fire involving oil. Instead, get out, stay out, and dial 999.”
