Sixty firefighters spent most of the early hours of this morning tackling a fire at a five-storey house in Bayswater.

A dozen fire engines, from Kensington, Chelsea, Hammersmith, Paddington, Knightsbridge, Bow, Wandsworth, Chiswick and West Hampstead attended the scene on Palace Court Road from around 1.20am.

The blaze affected every floor and part of the roof of the mansion, which was under construction.

Nobody was injured.

Station Manager Dave Robinson said: “Crews have been working hard throughout the night in challenging conditions to get this fire under control and to stop it from spreading to neighbouring buildings.

The house affected by the fire is a large property which is currently under refurbishment.

“No-one is believed to have been living there and thankfully we’ve had no reports of any injuries.

The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.
