Eight engines and 58 crew members were sent to the property in Evering Road just after 4.30pm.
The fire gutted the basement, the ground floor and the stairs and damaged half of the first floor and some of the roof but neighbouring houses were unaffected.
Three people were forced to leave the house before the brigade arrived but no one was injured.
Station Manager Sanjay Prasad was at the scene, he said: “This was a severe fire in the basement. The first fire crews in attendance worked hard to contain the fire. They successfully managed to contain it so that the neighbouring property was protected.”
