A family was able to escape from a fire at their home in Stamford Hill because they had a working smoke alarm.

Four engines and about 25 firefighters were called to Kyverdale Road at 2.20pm on Friday after a room at the rear of the terraced property went up in flames.

Luckily no one was injured and fire crews have spoken of the importance of having a working smoke alarm installed.

The fire was under control within an hour. The cause is under investigation.
