Five individuals were forced to flee through a first floor window following an Erith chip store caught fire on Sunday afternoon.
Over 15 firefighters in Orpington and Sidcup channels were called to combat the blaze in Hooked Fish & Grill at Colyers Lane before 4pm on June 2.
Five individuals who were at an upstairs apartment at the time escaped the construction before the engines came with a builder’s ladder.
Three individuals were treated at the scene by paramedics but weren’t taken to hospital.
A refrigerator and two fencing panels that were at the back garden of the house have been destroyed by the fire.
Staff in the restaurant have since published a statement through Instagram about yesterday’s flame where they thanked the community for their aid.
It read:”We want to apologise to our clients for closures now as a result of unforeseen conditions.
“Regrettably, our assumptions caught fire this afternoon.
“We want to thank everybody in the community and also our locals for the enormous help in this period of difficulty.
“Grateful for any advice anyone can provide us to be able to recognize how this episode has happened. “We guess the fire might have been triggered intentionally. Thank you”
But, a Met spokeswoman has stated there are not any indications that point to the flame as being questionable.
The London Ambulance Service happen to be contacted for additional info.
