Firefighters have issued a candle safety warning after a fire at a house in Carlyon Road in Wembley.
Part of the loft space of a semi detached house and a small part of the neighbouring property’s loft space were damaged by fire. The Brigade’s fire investigators believe the fire was caused by a candle left unattended.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “Candles are one of the most common causes of fire. It’s really important that you never leave a candle unattended and keep them away from curtains and anything else that can easily catch fire.”
Two adults and two children left the property before the arrival of the Brigade. There are no reports of any injuries.
The Brigade was called at 1221 and the fire was under control at 1341. Four fire engines and 21 firefighters and officers from Wembley, Park Royal, Acton and Ealing fire stations attended the scene.
