According to The Sun, Behailu Kebede, an Ethiopian mini-cab driver, called 999 after flames took hold of his fourth floor flat in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Mr Kebede’s friend Eshete Meried told Mail Online: “Behailu did raise the alarm, that is what I am hearing.

“He is fine but he is not in a position to talk about anything right now. I understand that he in a temporary shelter, staying with friends.”

Neighbour Maryann Adam, 41, said no smoke or fire alarm was sounding in the building when Behailu was forced to evacuate his flat. ‘He knocked on the door, and he said there was a fire in his flat. It was exactly 12.50am because I was sleeping and it woke me up,’ she says.

The British Prime minister, Theresa May today announced a full public enquiry into the cause of the blaze and an investigation is underway to find out why the fire spread so quickly out of the flat of origin.
