Firefighters have issued a candle safety reminder after a fire at a flat on Millennium Drive in Millwall.
Most of a four-roomed flat on the third floor of a four-storey block was damaged by the fire. There were no reports of any injuries.
The Brigade's fire investigators believe the fire was caused by a candle, thought to have been used as part of a religious shrine.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “Candles are one of the most common causes of fire.
"It’s really important that you never leave a candle unattended and keep them away from anything else that can easily catch fire.”
The Brigade was called at 1854 and the fire was under control by 1941. Three fire engines and around 15 firefighters from Millwall, Plaistow and Poplar fire stations attended the scene.
