Station Manager Graham Coles, who was at the scene, said: “Firefighters worked really hard to stop the fire from spreading to neighbouring properties.”
The Brigade was called at 1151. Firefighters from Croydon, Norbury, Tooting and Mitcham fire stations were at the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
