A man left the property before the Brigade arrived. He was suffering from smoke inhalation and was taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service crews.

The Brigade was called at 1833 and the fire was under control by 2028. Fire crews from Plumstead and surrounding fire stations were at the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.”

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
