Three people were taken to hospital after a fire broke out in a flat in West Kensington in the early hours of Friday (1 September).

The Fire Brigade received the first call at 1.37am and four fire engines and around 25 firefighters from Hammersmith, Kensington, Fulham and Heston fire stations attended the scene on Comeragh Road.

Most of a four-roomed flat on the ground floor of a converted end-of-terrace house was damaged by fire as well as half of the communal area.

The fire was under control by 4.02am.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Brigade and the Metropolitan Police Service.
