A passerby who captured mobile footage of a fire, which devastated a warehouse on the Enfield industrial estate earlier today (November 23), has spoken of the sheer scale of the blaze.
Luke Gutteridge, 31, was in the area to drop of his cousin's car at a local garage when he saw the vast plume of smoke emanating from the site.
Mollison Avenue was closed off in both directions to allow emergency services through, leaving many commuters baffled as to where the huge trail of smoke was coming from.
Luke said: “I was stood about a quarter of a mile away when I first saw the smoke plume.
"I assumed it was someone burning something as there are farmers' fields in the area, but when I looked closer I saw it was coming from the industrial estate.
"I decided to go for a closer look and film what was happening but the temperature change hit me straight away.
"You could just feel this intense heat in the air, I could feel it even though I was stood behind a safety line."
"The smoke and flames were being blown in all directions and the road was closed off to allow emergency services to get through.
"Firefighters were quick to tackle the blaze and there were concerns it would spread to other businesses in the area, thankfully they got it all under control."
More than 80 firefighters attended the scene after reports a fire had broken out at East Duck Lees Lane in Ponders End at 9.13am.
London Ambulance Service confirmed that there were no serious injuries reported at the scene of the blaze. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
