London Fire Brigade state:

Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters have been called to a fire at a coffee shop on Eltham High Street.

Part of the ground floor of the three-storey building is alight.

The Brigade was called at 1254. Fire crews from Eltham, Lee Green, Sidcup and Lewisham fire stations are at the scene.

The High Street is closed by police. Buses are diverted.

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

    I hope all the staff and customers are safe which is the most important thing.

    Such a shame for this to happpen at a time businesses are trying to recover from the pandemic. Eltham High Shoppers will miss this branch of Costa Coffee while the building is closed for cleaning and refurbishment. Fingers crossed ithis branch of Costa Coffee will be ready to re-open again soon.
