Three people managed to escape when fire broke out in their home on the Isle of Dogs this-morning.

Two men and a woman made their way to safety in the street from the blaze that broke out on the first floor of a mid-terraced house at Manchester Grove, Cubitt Town, at 9am, before emergency fire crews arrived.

The blaze destroyed half the first floor and caused smoke damage to other parts of the two-storey house—but no-one was injured.

Crews from Millwall, Poplar, Shadwell and Plaistow fire-stations got the blaze under control in an hour. Fire Brigade investigators are now looking into the cause.
