Firefighters were called to a derelict pub on two separate occassions last night to find different areas of the building’s first floor on fire.
The Pompadours, in Edenhall Road, Harold Hill, served its last pint in March and has been standing empty ever since.
A London Fire Brigade spokesman confirmed they were called to the derelict pub at around 5.30pm yesterday evening.
Four fire engines and 21 firefighters responded to the call and discovered part of the building’s first floor on fire.
They had the blaze under control by 6.15pm.
Later that night, at 10pm, firefighters were again called to the pub to find another area of the first floor had gone up. This incident took 47 minutes to deal with.
Fire crews from Harold Hill, Romford, Hornchurch and Dagenham fire stations attended the two fires.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
