    The cause of the fire is under investigation.
    "The fire is on the top floor of the five story block and very visible for miles around," the brigade said in an earlier statement.
    The brigade said fire crews were called to the scene at 1.04 a.m. "Fire crews from West Hampstead and surrounding stations are at the scene. The cause of the fire is not known at this stage."

      "Firefighters assisted two people from the first floor and around 50 have evacuated the block," he said before the blaze was brought under control.
      "Due to concerns that the roof could collapse inward firefighters evacuated residents from the top floor. In addition fire crews assisted two people from the first floor and a number of other residents self evacuated from lower floors."
