The cause of a blaze in East Ham which damaged a number of terraced houses and left a woman is hospital has been revealed.
Seventy firefighters were called to a house on Caledon Road on Saturday afternoon, June 25, where a fire broke out in the rear garden and spread to neighbouring homes.
London Fire Brigade (LFB) says eight people left the building before crews arrived and a woman was treated at the scene then taken to hospital.
Part of the ground and first floors of a number of houses were damaged and rear fencing and sheds at the properties were destroyed.
The blaze is believed to have been accidental and caused by a bonfire in a rear garden spreading out of control, LFB says.
Crews were called at 1.30pm and the fire was under control just over two hours later.
