Firefighters tackled a blaze in a basement flat of a six storey block in Maida Vale.

Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters were called to a flat fire in Malvern Road at 9.15am on June 8.

Part of a basement flat in a six-storey block was damaged by the fire, London Fire Brigade (LFB) said.

There were no reports of any injuries.

LFB station officer Graham Danbury said: "The fire was in a bedroom in a basement flat, but the flat could only be accessed from the ground floor which proved difficult.

"However crews managed to quickly gain access and tackled the fire before it really took hold and the fire was contained to the bedroom, with smoke logging in the rest of the flat.

"There was no one inside the property at the time of the fire so fortunately no one was injured."

The  fire was under control by 9.50am.

Fire crews from Paddington, North Kensington and West Hampstead fire stations were at the scene.
