One Direction star suffers fire at Canary Wharf home
The luxury Pan Peninsula penthouse at the centre of a blaze on Monday evening has been revealed to be the home of One Direction star Liam Payne.
A 35-strong team of firefighters were called to reports of a patio heater explosion just after 9.45pm, with 30 other residents fleeing the tower block prior to their arrival.
Three of the popstar's friends - believed to be two men and a woman - were taken to hospital for treatment to burns on the hands and face.
According to The Mirror, Liam was inside the flat when the blaze broke out and joined them in the ambulance.
It reported a source as saying: "His friend went to fill up the gas for a heating lamp, there was some sort of accident and the whole balcony went up in flames."
The fire destroyed 80 per cent of the balcony and London Fire Brigade's fire investigation unit is currently looking into its cause.
