Around 125 firefighters and 15 fire engines were called to tackle a blaze at a block of flats in east London’s docklands.
The top corner of the high-rise block of flats has been left blackened with several apartment windows missing, but smoke is no longer issuing from the block with the fire extinguished.
London Fire Brigade (LFB) said its crews tackled the blaze on Manwood Street in north Woolwich which appears to be at the top of a block with around 18 storeys.
Keith Sanders, an LFB spokesperson, said: "Crews arrived to find a top floor flat alight, which was producing heavy smoke. They were also faced with a grass fire opposite the flat and another fire in the grass area opposite the block.
"Crews worked incredibly hard to bring the fire under control and smoke is now subsiding.
"There were a lot of possessions and clutter inside the flat which made it challenging for firefighters. It can make fires spread much faster, especially when there are lots of flammable items such as newspapers or cardboard.
"There are currently no reports of any injuries."
Footage appeared to show thick plumes of smoke barrelling out of the top floor windows of the building in North Greenwich.
Flames could also be seen, according to eyewitnesses.
