Answered By: 
The Mayor

When recording details of certain incidents, London Fire Brigade crews are asked "was the property being used as accommodation and was it unsuitable for that purpose (e.g. beds in sheds)?" This is generally asked about non-residential buildings, which would include garages and sheds, but also about derelict residential buildings or buildings under construction. Based on this, the data collected below is for the five years from 2012 to 2016.
