Firefighters have issued a candle safety warning after a fire at a house in Madeira Road in Southgate.
Half of the loft conversion of the terraced house was 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.”
The Brigade was called at 1309 and the fire was under control at 1348. Four fire engines and around 20 firefighters and officers from Southgate, Finchley, Edmonton and Tottenham fire stations attended the scene.
