Families evacuated from Kilburn flat fire

A number of families were evacuated from a fire that tore through a flat in north-west London.

Six fire engines and about 30 fighters attended the fire, which took place in Kilburn on Friday.

Half of a fifth-floor flat was destroyed, while all the inhabitants of the block were moved out. The fire was under control by the afternoon.

A London Fire Brigade spokesman said the cause of the fire was not yet known and an investigation is under way.
