More than 20 firefighters put out a blaze in a three-storey Croydon flat-block this afternoon.

Part of a five room flat on the second floor of the building was damaged. There were no reports of any injuries.

The Brigade was called shortly after 2.30pm, with four fire crews from Woodside, Beckenham, Croydon and Addington fire stations attending, who brought the fire under control by 3.30pm.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
