Half of the loft conversion of the terraced house was damaged by fire. The Brigade’s fire investigators believe the fire was caused by a candle left unattended.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “Candles are one of the most common causes of fire. It’s really important that you never leave a candle unattended and keep them away from curtains and anything else that can easily catch fire.”
