Three adults escaped from a house fire which had to be brought under control by 40 firefighters.

The blaze broke out at a house on The Bishops Avenue in East Finchley this morning. Eight fire engines were called to the scene, as well as an aerial appliance.

The fire affected the property’s staircase, first floor and roof. Three adults managed to get out of the house before London Fire Brigade arrived.

Station Manager Laurie Kenny said: “Our crews worked really hard to get this fire under control.”

Firefighters were called at 4.53am and the fire was brought under control by 7.12am. Fire crews from Finchley, Barnet, Willesden, Hornsey, West Hampstead, Wembley and Edmonton fire stations attended the incident.

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