London Fire Brigade pump damaged by fire

A London Fire Brigade pump damaged by a dramatic fire which took place on the night of 15 August 1920 on the Thames at Woolwich, SE London. The barge Dorcas, laden with several thousand gallons of petrol, caught fire, burned though her mooring ropes and, drifting in the tide, blazed furiously. The Dorcas collided with and set fire to two tugs, Woolwich Pier and nine other barges, a ferryboat and several buildings before grounding on the shore. By then ten London Fire Brigade pumps were waiting, but as they got to work the Dorcas blew up with flames 300 feet high. Although there were no serious injuries, firefighters had to abandon three pumps, which were all burnt out. Here are the remains of one

MFB Hampstead fire station, NW London

Built originally for the Metropolitan Fire Brigade in 1868, Hampstead fire station was located at 49 Heath Street, NW London. It became the responsibility of the London County Council in 1889 upon the creation of the LCC, when the MFB changed its name to the London Fire Brigade. The station was one of many fire stations which were closed during 1920-1923 when, with the introduction of motorised fire appliances and the improved performance petrol engines, fire station grounds could be enlarged to cover a greater area
