Flat fire near Lewisham station sees 70 firefighters attend

A fire has broken out in a block of flats near Lewisham station on Lewisham Road.

Ten fire engines and 70 firefighters are on scene where it appears that the roof is on fire.



The housing block appears to be an early 20th century building beside the Lethbridge estate, which is being demolished and rebuilt.

Update: the smoke seems to be dying down in recent minutes with firefighters on aerial platforms. Great work by the Fire Brigade and thanks to Paul @bitoclass for updates.
