Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters were called to a house fire on Lamport Close in Woolwich.
Part of the roof soffit and fascia of the semi detached house was damaged by the fire, which was caused by garden waste being burned near to the house.
The Brigade was called at 1853 and the fire was under control by 1954. Fire crews from Plumstead and East Greenwich attended the scene.
