A second fire has occurred at a detached house under renovation within two weeks – and the blazes are now under investigation by the Metropolitan Police.

The most recent fire took place at the home on Baring Road and was attended by around 25 firefighters and four fire engines from Lee Green, Lewisham and Bromley stations.

The firefighters battled the blaze from 9.13pm to 9.48pm on February 4.

Despite challenging conditions due to missing floor sections, no injuries were reported.

The attending Sub Officer explained the difficulty of moving around the property due to the renovation works.

Sub Officer Ian Lewington was at the scene, he said: "Crews wearing breathing apparatus worked extremely hard in difficult conditions to bring the fire under control.

“Due to the renovation works parts of the floor were missing and made manoeuvring around the property considerably challenging."

The ground floor of the house suffered severe fire damage.

The reason behind the fire remains unknown and under police investigation.

Another blaze on January 22 at the house on Baring Road is also under investigation by police.

Firefighters from London Fire Brigade were called at 5:29pm to the fire in Baring Road after eight calls were received.

Four fire engines and 25 firefighters were sent to the scene, with crews from Lee Green, Lewisham and Bromley fire stations despatched.

Half the roof, part of the loft and part of the roof of a two-storey detached house was damaged by the blaze.

There were no reported injuries.

The fire was under control by 7.29pm.

We have approached Metropolitan Police for a statement.
