    Big respect for the firefighters dealing with this and thoughts go out to the people who are affected.

    My parents house caught fire last week. Other than the garage, all their stuff was still salvageable. I can’t imagine losing everything in a fire like this. I hope everyone makes it through ok.

    As someone who was very badly burnt and knows the pain that comes with that I believe Fire Fighters are true heroes.
    The balls it must take to risk their lives rushing to deal with a fire while everyone else is running the other way is mind blowing.
    Big up fire fighters world wide.

    My older sister lives in London, and I hope she’s okay. All my respect for the firefighters and everyone who’s been trying to keep people alive and safe. My heart goes out to all the people suffering. This is devastating, and I hope everyone will be safe.

    My heart goes out to all in London and area affected and big respect and blessings to the firefighters and emergency workers. Praying for the animals and people that are affected. Sending much love to all. Stay safe.

    I live in Surrey and two days ago a combination of the sun and negligence from the building owner caused my home to set alight. My flat and the one above share a roof where it started. Lost most of my belongings to water damage from the six engines that turned up. Totally not their fault but it took nearly half an hour for the first one to arrive because the station 30 seconds down the road was already out on a call. Now i’m homeless for three months and so much of my stuff is ruined. Watching it happen and knowing that no help was coming until it was too late was one of the most horrendous things I’ve ever experienced and my heart goes out to all the people affected by this across the country.

      @Spiral Out A fair comment. FORTY degrees won’t start a fire 🔥 on it’s own. There are other underlying factors here as well. CHEERS FROM AUSTRALIA 🇦🇺

      @Alice May Methinks thee doth protest too much

    • Caint Saor says:

      @Papaya Madness Ireland is just next door, haven’t heard anything about fires there – yet!

    Very sad. Scary for folks who aren’t used to this level of devastation. My heart goes out to all affected. ❤️🙏🏼

      @James Younger it’s not about now it’s about the future. They are still rising and 0.2 Celsius might not sound like much but when it’s affecting an ecosystem tied to its climate even the smallest changes will have a staggering butterfly effect. Sure the world ain’t ending but It might later on. 🤦‍♀️

    • James Younger says:

      Global temperatures are currently 0.2c above average that really isnt that much and most certainly isnt something to suggest the world is ending.

    • DESIRE says:

      @Lindsay Richards yeah that’s true. Just seeing comments filled with this kind of annoys me. No one’s focusing on the real issue.

    • Lindsay Richards says:

      @DESIRE yep but I’m just focusing on what’s currently in front of us.

  8. Holly L says:

    So sad for all concerned. Respect for all those fire fighters doing their best in that heat!

  9. Emily Whitfield says:

    I have the deepest respect for these firefighters battling these fires! Be careful everyone and stay safe! Emily from Missouri!!😊😊😊

    I have a friend who lives in London, not sure where he lives over there but still has me worried about him. I’m originally from California so fires are something I learned early on aren’t any to take lightly. My heart goes out to those who lost their homes and everything they owned. Much respect to the first responders who are doing all they can under the circumstances, and I pray they will be kept safe as firefighters are always at risk. 🙏🏻
