The woman, aged 43, was discovered dead by crew members after the fire broke out shortly after 1am. Dramatic images showed smoke billowing from the property’s windows and into the night sky as crews fought to bring the fire under control. Almost two dozen emergency calls were made after the blaze broke out, with 60 firefighters in eight engines rushing to the scene.
Two people who had left the building before firefighters arrived were rushed to hospital.
London Fire Brigade said: “Sadly one woman was found dead at the scene by crews wearing breathing apparatus.”

The fire was under control by 3.12am and its cause is being investigated.
