Wood Wharf stricken by 35th floor fire

Hundreds of construction workers had to be evacuated on Tuesday from a tower block under construction at Wood Wharf, after a fire broke out on the 35th floor. Five fire engines and around 35 firefighters were called to the blaze at the Canary Wharf Contractors (CWC) development on Prestons Road; one man suffered smoke inhalation, while part of a five-roomed apartment suffered damage. A CWC spokesperson said it is fully supporting a London Fire Brigade investigation.
