Firefighters are reminding Londoners to not leave their cooking unattended after a fire at a shop with flats above in Hendon Lane in Finchley.
Half of a ground floor and kitchen was damaged by fire. One man was rescued by firefighters wearing breathing apparatus from a first floor flat.
The fire investigation team believe the fire was caused by unattended cooking.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said:
“Although there was a smoke alarm that sounded, we would like to remind the public to never leave cooking unattended – if you have to leave the room or the house, turn the heat off. “
The Brigade was called at 1538 and the fire was under control at 1633. Fire crews from Finchley, Northolt and Hendon fire stations attended the scene.
