Four people were rescued from the balconies of a block of flats in Brighton as fire crews tackled a blaze there last night (Sunday 9 June).
The fire was first reported in a second floor flat shortly before 10.30pm last night at Falcon Court in Swanborough Place in Whitehawk.
It spread to the commonways and the nine-storey block of flats was evacuated and became smokelogged.
East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service sent crews from Roedean and Preston Circus in Brighton and a crew from Hove. They brought the fire under control within an hour.
An investigation is taking place to try to work out how the fire started.
