A surge of responding emergency vehicles slowed traffic during rush hour in South London Thursday.

Wellington Road was closed near Emery Street East around 5:25 p.m. when four fire trucks, police, and paramedics responded to a fire at a house at the corner of the streets.

Police at the scene said it was a stovetop fire that caused no damage and no injuries.

Minutes later, police, fire and paramedics responded to a two car accident less than a kilometer north of the fire at Wellington Road and Grand Avenue. One car climbed the curb of the intersection and hit the pole of a traffic light.

No one was seriously hurt from the crash, police said.
