Cllr Lib Peck, Lambeth Council leader, said: “The fire in Prentis Road, Streatham will have been very alarming for people, particularly the elderly residents who have had to leave the Glebe sheltered housing temporarily and those who have been evacuated from their homes and businesses.
“We are doing all we can to help and support people in Streatham who’ve been affected by the fire. Council officers are on site to support residents.
“We are hugely grateful that no one has been injured and I want to pay tribute to the emergency services, particularly the London Fire Brigade, who have responded quickly to deal with this incident.”
