Station Commander Sacha Clement, who was at the scene, said: “The firefighters were confronted with a well-developed fire on their arrival.

“One of our new 32-meter rotating ladders was on site and was used to fight the fire at height.”

Fire brigade investigators believe the fire was accidental and the most likely cause was hot work that had been done on the roof.
