Sauna "destroyed" in Pan Peninsula fire
A sauna in one of the Wharf's most luxurious developments was "destroyed" in a fire at the weekend.
Around 60 firefighters and 12 fire engines battled the blaze, which broke out on the third floor of Pan Peninsula's six-floor residents-only leisure complex at just before 8.20am on Saturday.
London Fire Brigade is still investigating the cause of the blaze at the Millharbour development, but early indications suggest it was due to a "malfunction" of the sauna itself. Tower Hamlets Police confirmed the incident was being treated as "non-suspicious".
While crews from Millwall fire station and the surrounding area had the fire under control by 12.56pm, police closed roads around the 50-floor apartment complex soon after arriving at 8.33am. Marsh Wall itself re-opened at 4.40pm. No one was injured.
Following the blaze, the sauna in the adjacent Six Senses Spa was turned off as a precaution, but is expected to be turned on again in the next day or two.
A Six Senses spokeswoman said: "Everybody had to be evacuated, but it wasn't related to Six Senses itself. The spa was not affected, and all appointments are still going ahead as normal."
