E-bike and e-scooter fires on increase in London
Firefighters in London have tackled more e-bike and e-scooter fires so far in 2023 than they did for the whole of 2022 – with
e-bikes becoming the capital’s fastest-growing fire trend, according to the London Fire Brigade. By the end of August, crews
had fought 104 e-bike fires along with 19 e-scooter blazes, overtaking the 116 total fires attended last year, and higher
than in any other year in London.
