Residents flee two fires on same Maida Hill road within two days
The fire brigade is not linking two blazes that took place on the same Maida Hill road within two days.
A woman was rescued from a flat on Portnall Road by firefighters wearing breathing equipment in the early hours of Saturday morning.
On Monday, three people escaped from flats on the same road when a blaze broke out at lunchtime.
London Fire Brigade says it believes the two fires were started accidentally, one by an incense stick and the other by an extractor fan.
The first blaze saw 10 firefighters attend the scene at 1.39am on Saturday.

Twenty firefighters then attended at 12.59pm on Monday after a man and two women had escaped a fire in a terraced house.
The ground floor was damaged and one of the women was taken to St Mary’s due to slight smoke inhalation.
Investigations have shown the fire started with an extractor fan in a kitchen.
