    "More than 70 firefighters are tackling a huge blaze at a block of flats in Bethnal Green.

    Ten fire engines and 72 officers were sent to the scene in Turin Street on Saturday afternoon.

    Thick black smoke poured into the sky as firefighters fought the blaze which broke out in a third floor flat.

    Images and video footage showed bright flames billowing from the roof."

    My God! Poor Londoners!

    Thank God this fire looks comparatively small, and it's not a highrise, and as you say, thankfully no cladding, but still, it's frightening.

    Hopefully the person in hospital will recover.

    Yes thankfully it doesn't appear to be a major fire and people were evacuated in time.

    The roof has been completely destroyed. IMG_0031.jpg

    Roof insulation? What was burning so fiercely in this fire with such black smoke? A good job it was a top floor flat but as the roof now looks completely gone there will be more homeless by the look of it. And what started the fire this time?
