Six units of fire brigade battled blaze on Brentford High Street
Six units of London Fire Brigade battled a blaze today at the well-known family-run Goddard's furniture store on Brentford High Street.
The blaze appears to have started on the first floor of the shop, and the alarm was raised shortly after 2.30pm (Dec 16). The fire was brought under control around three hours later.
Fire Brigade units were called in from Chiswick, Acton, Heston, Hammersmith, Acton and Ealing.
About thirty-five firefighters attended the scene.
Some buses were diverted due to the fire. Traffic in both directions was also affected.
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
P Goddard and Sons Ltd was founded in 1815 by Joseph Goddard and is now run by his descendants. The shop has occupied the corner premises on the western corner of the High Street since 1969.
As well as being is a home and business furnishings store, it is also a removal firm and self-storage service.
