Around 125 firefighters tackled two fires in North Woolwich this afternoon.

The London Fire Brigade (LFB) was called at 12.49pm today - Wednesday, July 20 - to the blaze on Dunedin House, Manwood Street.

A flat on the 17th floor of the building was alight, while firefighters were also alerted to a grass fire opposite the block.

Fifteen fire engines were been deployed to the scene after the Brigade's 999 Control Officers took more than 105 calls to the blaze.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Newham mayor Rokhsana Fiaz took to social media to assure residents that "council resources will be made available as needed".

Station commander Keith Sanders, who was at the scene, said: "Crews worked incredibly hard to bring the fire under control and smoke is now subsiding.

"We used our 32-metre turntable ladder and drones at the scene to provide an aerial view of the incident."

The fire was under control by 3.07pm, and there are currently no reports of any injuries.

This latest fire came after the LFB experienced its "busiest day since World War II" on Tuesday.

The record-breaking heatwave meant firefighters dealt with more than 1,146 incidents across the capital - including in Wennington, Upminster, Dagenham and Wembley.

Thankfully, there were no fatalities in yesterday's fires.
