Tuesday afternoon in central London, 21 firefighters and four fire engines rushed to deal with a fire outbreak at a block of maisonettes. Startling images show that the fire, in Marylebone, could be seen from miles away.
A five-roomed maisonette on the second and third floor were alight, according to the London Fire Brigade. They were called at 3.55 pm, with the fire said to be under control by 5.30. There were several fire station crews at the scene, including Kensington, Kentish Town, Hammersmith and West Hampstead.
Three individuals were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation - they fortunately managed to leave the property before the Brigade’s arrival. The London Ambulance Service took one of the three to hospital; their condition is unknown at this stage.
The LFB say that the cause of fire is still under investigation; the owner of the building has not been confirmed
