Two people have been treated for smoke inhalation after a house caught fire in Ilford.

A total of four fire engines and around 25 firefighters tackled the house fire on January 18.

The London Fire Brigade was called to the Cranbrook Rise house at 6.27am and the fire was under control by 8.01am.

A small part of the first floor of the terraced house was damaged by the fire.

Two people left the property before the Brigade arrived and were treated by London Ambulance Service crews for smoke inhalation.

Crews from Ilford, Leytonstone and Woodford fire stations attended the scene. 

The fire is believed to have been accidental and caused by an extractor fan, according to the Brigade.
