Around 45 firefighters were dispatched after a fire ripped through both floors of a Belvedere home late last night.

Fire crews were alerted to a house ablaze in Beckett Close shortly before 11pm on Sunday, August 26.

According to a spokesman for the London Fire Brigade, around half of ground floor was destroyed by the flames with parts of the first floor also damaged.

It's believed that the fire initially started within the conservatory area of the affected home.

Two adults from the building on fire and two adults from a neighbouring home left their properties before the Brigade arrived.

Six engines were called to the scene with firefighters managing to control the blaze shortly before 12:30am.

The LAS has been contacted for an update on any injuries which may have occurred.
