Fire crews from Hornchurch, Harold Hill, Romford, and Dagenham fire stations worked until 6.37am to control the blaze.

The LFB spokesperson recommended that residents must check their online home fire safety guidelines to ensure there are no hidden hazards in the home.

The online tool, they said, will ask users a series of questions that will help the LFB work out the level of risk in the property.

They added: “It only takes a few minutes to get tailored advice to keep yourself and loved ones safe from fire."
