Firefighters are reminding Londoners not to leave candles unattended after a fire at a flat on Melville Place in Islington.
Part of a three roomed flat on the ground floor of a four-storey block was damaged by fire. Ten people left the building before the Brigade arrived. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus led one woman to safety from the ground floor of a neighbouring flat.
The fire is believed to have been caused by candles that were left unattended.
