Two appliances turned out to Bridgewood flats on St John’s Wood Road at the junction of Park Road shortly before 11:25. A 999 call was received reporting a burning smell from an electrical socket in a communal hallway.
Investigations were carried out to discover a fire in a light switch before the scene was made safe. It is understood one person was advised to leave the building as a precaution, however this was later not necessary.
Fire crews left the scene less than 30 minutes later.
