Fire at Parliament View on Albert Embankment under investigation

The London Fire Brigade is investigating the cause of a fire in the Parliament View apartment block next to Lambeth Bridge on Tuesday night.

The brigade was called at 8.22pm on Tuesday and the fire was under control an hour later.

Four fire engines from Lambeth and Soho fire stations were called to the scene.

"Around 12 people mainly from the floor affected evacuated the building," said a brigade spokesman.

"People in flats unaffected by fire and smoke were perfectly safe inside their flats and there were no injuries."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Parliament View's residents include a number of high-profile politicians and public figures.
