北角糖水道行人天橋大火

北角糖水道一條通往康威大廈的行人天橋,今晨(25日)6時59分,天橋上突然發生火警,火勢迅速蔓延,行人天橋內湧出熊熊火光及大量濃煙,據悉,現場一度傳出爆炸聲響。多人察覺火警報警求助。消防接報趕至現場,派出兩隊煙帽隊,升起雲梯開動兩條喉灌救。消息指,火警於7時20分已被救熄,初步未有發現傷者。

據了解,涉事行人天橋平日時有露宿者停留,現場擺放的大批傢居、雜物被焚毀。今次火警起火範圍約5米乘4米,火警中毋須疏散,惟起火原因有待調查。受事件影響,東區走廊落橋及英皇道來回行車線一度需封閉,至近8時始解封,現場交通擠塞。

翻查資料,上址於2018年9月23日亦發生火警,當時大批露宿者家當被縱火焚毀。
