South-east London tower-block blaze brought under control

“Two people left the affected flat and firefighters evacuated the rest of the block as a precaution due to the amount of smoke. “This was a challenging incident due to the fire being in a roof hatch and firefighters worked hard to bring it under control. “Aerial ladder platforms were used to tackle the blaze in the roof from height.” Earlier, plumes of smoke were seen billowing from the tower block.
