Three people were rescued from a fire in a Manor Park flat in the early hours of this morning.

A 12-year-old girl was taken to Whipps Cross Hospital by a London ambulance as a precaution.
A spokesperson from the London Ambulance Service said: “We sent one ambulance crew, a hazard area response team ad a duty officer to the scene.”
Crews from Ilford and East Ham fire stations attended and left the scene around two hours later.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown and is being investigated.
