Firefighters have tackled a blaze at a house on Pollards Hill South in Norbury this morning.
The roof and a small part of the first floor of a detached chalet bungalow were damaged by the fire. One man left the building before the Brigade arrived. He was assessed at the scene by London Ambulance Service crews.
The Brigade was called just before 9am and the fire was under control not long after 10am.
Six fire engines and around 40 firefighters from Norbury, West Norwood, Croydon, Mitcham and Tooting fire stations were at the scene.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
