A fire broke out at a block of flats near Grenfell Tower in west London.

London Fire Brigade was called at 11.39am on Friday morning to a report of “smoke issuing” from Markland House on Darfield Way in Notting Hill.

The fire is now under control, but crews will remain on the site this afternoon.

The building is across the road from the site of the tragic Grenfell Tower blaze in June 2017, which claimed the lives of 72 people.

LFB said eight fire engines and around 60 firefighters were called to the fire in Darfield Way, Notting Hill.

The Brigade’s 999 control officers took 27 emergency calls regarding the incident.

Danielle Bond, who witnessed the blaze from a nearby office block, said the fire had spread to six floors.

The 26-year-old receptionist said she was already fearful about another Grenfell Tower-type tragedy before the fire broke out.

She said: “I kept thinking about that. If it’s happened somewhere else then it could happen again.”
