One person said: “Seems to be a major incident on Pinner View. Multiple ambulances, police vans and fire engines. Road blocked off so use alternative routes.”

Part of the ground floor of the building was damaged by fire. London Fire Brigade confirmed that a man and a woman were treated on scene by London Ambulance Service crews after suffering from smoke inhalation.
