The third serious warehouse fire of the summer on the London Docks kills two and injures several others

The third serious fire among the warehouses lining the Thames around the London Docks completely destroyed a nine-storey sugar warehouse and killed at least two men in a boilermaker's crew trapped above the blaze.  The fire was contained to the one building, however.  Total damage was estimated at around £80,000. (By John Osborne)
