A battery left on charge is believed to have been the cause of a blaze at a garage behind a house in Bexley.
Part of the detached building in Howard Avenue was damaged by the fire. There were no reports of any injuries.
The Brigade was called at 1545 and the fire was under control at 1652. Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters from Sidcup, Bexley and Greenwich fire stations attended the scene.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “Lithium-ions batteries are found in many electrical devices such as tablets and phones. It’s really important to charge them properly to avoid the risk of fire and there are some simple steps that you can follow.”
