These dramatic images show firefighters battling fierce flames after a property in Poplar caught fire.
Six fire engines and around 35 firefighters attended the blaze in Jamestown Way during the afternoon of Friday, June 24.
The flames gutted the whole of the second floor and roof of the three storey terraced property.
According to station manager Nick Harding, who was at the scene, a man was treated by paramedics from London Ambulance Service after dashing into the house and attempting to put out the fire.
Nick said: “The property is in a very exposed spot and it was windy, this didn’t help the situation but crews worked very hard to stop the fire spreading so neighbouring properties were not affected.
“We want to reiterate our message that when there is a fire people should get out and stay out.
“Unfortunately a man was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene after he saw flames, entered the property, and attempted to put the fire out.”
There have been unconfirmed reports that the man was a member of the concierge staff who was checking that nobody was in the affected properties.
The London Fire Brigade was called at 1pm and the fire was out by 3.19pm.
Crews from Poplar, Millwall, Shadwell, Stratford, East Greenwich and East Ham fire stations attended the blaze.
The cause of the fire is under investigation .
