A family of five were able to escape a serious fire at their flat in Edmonton Green at the weekend.

Five fire engines and around 35 firefighters were called to the flat fire at 11.40pm on Saturday.

Part of a three-roomed flat on the seventh floor of the tower block was damaged by fire. Four children and a woman had left the property before London Fire Brigade arrived and were treated on scene by London Ambulance Service crews.

The fire was under control by 12.31am on Sunday. Fire crews from Tottenham, Enfield, Chingford, Walthamstow and Hornsey fire stations attended the scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
