Electrical overloading is believed to be the cause of a fire at a house converted into flats on New Cross Road in New Cross.
Half of a first floor flat was damaged by fire. One man from the affected flat left the property before the Brigade arrived. He was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation and taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service crews.
A further three people left the building and fire crews evacuated four more as a precaution.
The Brigade was called at 1108 and the fire was under control at 1202. Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters were called to from New Cross, Greenwich, Old Kent Road, and Peckham fire stations attended the scene.
