Firefighters tackled a blaze at the Cauliflower Pub in Ilford.
The road was sectioned off and buses were diverted after a fire occurred at the side of the inn on the High Road today (Saturday, July 21).
A London Fire Brigade (LFB) spokesperson said the fire had been classed as a grade two, but was upgraded to a code one after it was discovered the section was not derelict.
“We were called before 12 to reports of a fire,” he said
“The fire investigations team will be investigating the cause of the fire.”
A Met Police spokesman confirmed officers were assisting at the scene with road closures.
Transport for London (TfL) said bus number 86 is being diverted in both directions at Aldborough Road South due to a “building fire”.
