On May 7, 2008, an explosion caused the collapse of two homes at Stanley Road, South Harrow.
``Two people were taken to hospital and following a search of the premises the body of a man was discovered,'' the London Fire Brigade said. ``At the height of the incident six fire engines and around 30 firefighters were at the scene.''
John Gaffney, a fire brigade station manager quoted by the BBC, said firefighters used ``specialist listening equipment'' to search the rubble for casualties.
