ver 100 firefighters have been called to blaze in south-east London, the fire brigade has confirmed.

Twenty fire engines and 120 firefighters were battling a blaze on the roof of a block of flats on Creek Road, Deptford, on Tuesday afternoon.

The Brigade said they were called at 1.03pm, while videos have shown large plumes of smoke eminating from the building as of 4.15pm.

The cause of the fire remains unknown and there have been no reports of injuries as of yet.

Approximately 13 people evacuated the building before the fire brigade arrived to tackle the blaze.

Station Commander Ian Smith, who is at the scene, said on Tuesday afternoon: “This is an intense fire located in the roof of the building and fire crews are working hard in challenging conditions.

“We’ve increased the number of fire engines because of the need for more firefighters in breathing apparatus.

“There is a lot of smoke from the incident and we’d ask local residents to close their doors and windows.”

Michael Rudling, a resident of the building told the Standard he was met with “thick black smoke” as he returned from work experience to see the extent of the blaze.

While his own flat remains on the second floor, he said officials informed him the top floor had been damaged due to the blaze.

He added: “People were relatively calm but it was typical London annoyance. People didn’t realise firefighters were working hard and they had to work hard to keep the cordons in place.”
