Firefighters were called to a block of flats above a health centre on St Ann’s Road in Tottenham this afternoon.
Crews managed to limit the fire damage to a small part of three flats on the third, fourth and fifth floors of the seven storey building.. Thankfully there were no injuries.
Tottenham Station Manager Alan Taylor who was at the scene said: “This was a very deep seated fire in the building’s external cavity walls and voids. It was very difficult to access which made this quite a protracted incident. The firefighters at the scene worked extremely hard to stop the fire from spreading and to successfully keep the fire damage to the affected flats to a minimum."
The Brigade was called at 1314 and the fire was under control by 1946. Two fire engines, a fire rescue unit, an aerial appliance and around 15 firefighters from Tottenham and Hornsey fire stations attended the incident.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
