Two women have been rescued following a fire in a block of flats in Canning Town.

The pair were rescued using smoke hoods after the blaze broke out in Vandome Close, at around midday on Saturday, 25 September.

London Ambulance Service took the women to hospital.

A woman and child, who left the building before the Brigade arrived, were treated on the scene.

A spokesperson for London Fire Brigade explained: “Fire escape hoods provide individuals with up to 15 minutes protection from four of the main fire gases (carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, hydrogen chloride and acrolein) and can be worn by conscious or unconscious people.

“If more than 15 minutes protection is required then another hood can be given to each wearer.

“They do not provide oxygen but temporarily filter toxic smoke to make breathing easier.”

Around 40 firefighters from Stratford, East Ham, Homerton, Greenwich and surrounding stations worked to tackle the fire which was under control by 1.50pm.

A ground floor flat was completely destroyed.

The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Metropolitan Police.
