Lewisham tower block fire
A fire broke out this morning at a recently built block of flats in Central Lewisham on Loampit Vale.
Evacuated at four this morning. Fire is out and everybody is safe, but very concerned there were no alarms going off. So grateful to the people in the buildings opposite screaming their tits off to alert us. #lewisham #fire pic.twitter.com/c51nPX6rEp

Pictures on social media show the blaze taking hold on the 12th floor.
Concerning reports also seem to be appearing that no fire alarm went off.
However the blaze did not spread upwards. The building is brick and does not feature cladding similar to Grenfell and other recently built blocks.
The fire was successfully put out by the London Fire Brigade.
