Wembley garage fire claims woman's life

A woman who was rescued from a garage fire in Wembley has since died

The victim was Daphne Gordon, who was left unconscious after the blaze tore through the garage at the rear of a property in Bowrons Avenue shortly before 1am yesterday morning.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus rescued the woman from the burning building.

She was treated by London Ambulance Service crews before being taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

London Fire Brigade posted a statement to their website confirming a woman rescued from a garage fire in Bowrons Avenue had “sadly died in hospital” on Friday.

The death has been deemed non-suspicious and the Coroner will not be ordering an inquest into her death.

It is thought Gorgon was asleep as the fire broke out. It is believed it started accidentally. Her family have been informed by the authorities.

The flames were brought under control by 2.20am.
