Buses destroyed in depot blaze

A huge fire at a depot in Greater London has destroyed seven buses and badly damaged four others.

About 60 firefighters attended the blaze — in Farnborough Hill, Orpington — at about 3.30 a.m. this morning.

What sounded like ‘explosions’ woke up people living nearby but, despite the ferocity of the fire, no one was injured.

London Fire Brigade (LFB) received about 40 calls and described the blaze, which took nearly three hours to get under control, as ‘very visible’.
