A discarded cigarette in a garden planter is believed to be the cause of a roof garden fire at a sheltered accommodation block of flats in Townmead Road, Fulham.
A domestic vegetation planter on the roof garden was destroyed by fire.
Around 15 people from neighbouring properties left before the arrival of the Brigade. The residents of the sheltered accommodation block remained in their unaffected flats.
The Brigade was called at 0632 and the fire was under control at 0750. Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters from Fulham, Chelsea, Wandsworth, and Battersea fire stations attended the scene.
