Two fire engines and 10 firefighters were called to a fire on the roof of a hotel on London Road, Thornton Heath.
Part of the roof was damaged by fire. Twenty people left the property before the Brigade arrived. Thankfully no one was injured.
The Brigade was called at 1706 and the fire was under control by 1748. Fire crews from Norbury and Croydon fire stations attended the scene.
The cause of the fire is believed to be due to hot works being carried out on an area of the flat roof.
