Major fire engulfs Croydon building

No-one was hurt in a major fire that engulfed a building in south London, the London Ambulance Service has said.

People were initially unaccounted for after a major fire broke out in the centre of Croydon, south London.

Flames could be seen coming from all three floors and the roof of a building on Southbridge Place, near to the Croydon Flyover.

London Fire Brigade sent six engines and 30 crew members to the scene and began a search for missing people.

But no-one required medical attention.

The building is located close to the offices of Croydon Council.
