Two fire engines and around 10 firefighters were called to a restaurant fire on Lavender Hill in Wandsworth.
Part of a store room on the ground floor was damaged by the fire, which was discovered by an employee. Five members of staff left the property before the arrival of the Brigade.
Fortunately, there were no diners in the restaurant at the time of the incident and there were no reported injuries.
The Brigade was called at 1926 and the fire was under control at 1952. Fire crews from Battersea and Chelsea fire stations attended the scene.
The Brigade’s fire investigators believe the fire to be accidental due to a faulty electrical cable.
