Firefighters led two dogs to safety following a fire in a block of flats on Kingham Close in Wandsworth this afternoon.

Part of a four roomed flat in the three storey block was damaged by the blaze. Crews made sure the dogs were secure in a safe part of the flat while they put the small fire out. Once the fire was extinguished the dogs were led to safety. Thankfully no people were involved and the dogs were uninjured. 

The Brigade was called at 1231 and the fire was under control by 1320. Four fire engines and 21 firefighters and officers from Wandsworth, Tooting and Battersea fire stations were at the scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
