BREAKING NEWS: Alarms Heard From Houses of Parliament- Smoke Rising From Building

Alarms Heard From Houses of Parliament- Smoke Rising From Building.

A FIRE is reported having broken out at the Houses of Parliament. Alarms are sounding across Westminster Bridge and smoke has been seen rising from the iconic London landmark. An eye witness posted footage on Twitter showing the smoke coming out from the iconic London landmark. A fire alarm can also be heard on the footage.

Emergency services are at the scene and police are cordoning off the area.

An eye witness posted footage on Twitter showing the smoke coming out from the iconic London landmark. A fire alarm can also be heard on the footage. Jessica Gallardo tweeted: “There’s a fire alarm and a lot of smoke coming out from Parliament in London.”

Important Update- with Video!

Video footage appeared to show smoke or steam rising from the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, as an alarm rang out in the background. However, firefighters have now reportedly declared the alarm as false.

The footage, posted to Twitter on Sunday, shows thick white smoke or steam seemingly rising from London’s Houses of Parliament. Some kind of alarm can be heard over the video, video credit to Jessica Gallardo.

A number of commenters on Twitter claimed that the video shows steam, not smoke, rising from the building. The London Fire Brigade later told TASS that reports of smoke were a “false alarm,” and that it “was just steam” rising from the roof.

Less than a month ago, firefighters were called to Westminster after smoke was seen billowing up from Parliament. The London Fire Brigade blamed that incident on “a generator starting up,” while Parliament said that the “smoke” seen coming from the building’s roof was steam, which is more visible in cold weather.
