A woman was treated for smoke inhalation and taken to Queen’s Hospital following a Cranham house fire last night (Thursday).

Firefighters from Harold Hill were called to the Brunswick Avenue blaze just before 8pm and extinguished the fire – believed to have been caused by curtains catching light.

The London Ambulance Service (LAS) confirmed they were called at 8.10pm and sent an ambulance crew, a single respondent in a car and the hazardous area response team to the scene.

They treated a woman, believed to be in her 40s, for smoke inhalation, and took her by ambulance to Queen’s Hospital, Romford.

Firefighters said the woman, along with her son, had left the building before they arrived.
