A tea light candle igniting clothing is believed to be the cause of a flat fire on Edensor Gardens in Chiswick.
Part of the room on the third floor was damaged by the blaze. A mother and a son left the scene before the Brigade arrived. There were no reports of any injuries.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “Candles are one of the common causes of house fires so it is very important you reduce any risk of a fire starting by putting out candles before sleeping and not leaving them unattended.”
The Brigade was called at 2111 and the fire was under control by 2201. Fire crews from Chiswick, Hammersmith and Acton fire stations attended the incident.
