A family-of-four were cared for by paramedics after a large fire outside their Harold Hill home left them stranded in the street in the middle of the night.

A London Fire Brigade spokesman confirmed firefighters and two engines were called to Hilldene Avenue at 1.23am this morning.

They discovered a fire at the front of a residential property – two adults and two children had already made their way safely out of the house before the emergency services arrived, and were treated at the scene by the London Ambulance Service for minor injuries.

It took the LFB just over an hour to bring the flames under control, with large amounts of fire damage reported to a car and the home’s front door.

The cause of the fire is now under investigation.

The Metropolitan Police have been contacted for comment.
