Fire Closes Old Malden Lane

Old Malden Lane was closed on Monday and Tuesday this week as a fire raged through what was apparently an old derelict house.

Several readers contacted the blog on Monday evening to say they could smell smoke and hear sirens. The section of road which includes The River Club was closed from around 7pm on Monday evening as fire fighters battled the blaze and was still closed to traffic on Tuesday afternoon.

An acrid smelling pile of burnt rubble is now all that is left of the old building now.
