Sixteen people escaped from a hotel blaze in New Cross last night (April 1) which is believed to have been sparked by a washing machine fault.
There were 21 firefighters called to Goddis Lodge, in New Cross Road, at 11.11pm to the fire which gutted a ground floor utility room.
Sixteen people escaped the building before London Fire Brigade (LFB) crews arrived with two treated for smoke inhalation.
Four fire engines from New Cross, Deptford, Greenwich and Old Kent Road fire stations tackled the flames which were under control by 12.15am.
The cause of the fire is believed to have been an electrical fault in a washing machine.
