The fire started on Friday evening

Firefighters spent more than five hours battling flames at a Beckenham house on Friday night.

Crews were called to Walled Garden Close just before 8pm, where they discovered the roof of a three-storey house on fire.

The fire had spread to a neighbouring roof, while debris from the property was falling onto the street below.

Most of the home’s roof was complete destroyed by the blaze, while falling debris damaged four cars.

Three people had managed to escape the property before London Fire Brigade arrived. No injuries were reported.

Six fire engines had been sent to the scene, with 35 firefighters attending.

Crews brought the incident to a close at 1.32am.

London Fire Brigade has opened an investigation into the cause of the blaze, though a Met Police spokesperson confirmed it was not being treated as suspicious.
