    The fire did not come from the air conditioning. The cause of the fire is unkown, however the fire you can see in the picture is a timber boxing in that covers a roof opening where services penetrate the roof. The boxing in was on fire, nothing else, no air conditioning units were involved, however the fire caused damage to air conditioning pipe work.

    Dear all:

    While a brief explanation of this second fire is welcome, the incident must create a major concern for everyone in the neighbourhood, especially those of us in the immediate vicinity of Kings Place. I cannot think of a building in London where a major fire has occurred twice in its construction & its first weeks of life. Surely it is appropriate to request a significant & independent review of the building’s safety specifications?

    This should NOT happen. Very concerned!
