Firefighters are issuing a cooking safety reminder after a fire at a house on Eastgate Close in Thamesmead.
Part of the first and second floor and loft space of an end of terraced house was damaged by fire. One adult and three children left the property before the arrival of the Brigade. There were no reports of any injuries.
Fire investigators believe the fire was caused by unattended cooking.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “This incident is a timely reminder to make sure you never leave cooking unattended. If you do have to leave the room or house, turn the heat off.”
The Brigade was called at 2236 and the fire was under control by 0016. Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters from Plumstead, Erith and Bexley fire stations attended the scene.
