Four fire engines were called to deal with a fire at the student accommodation Brayford Quays at lunchtime on Tuesday.

The fire caused an entire block to be evacuated and the riverfront to be closed.

It’s┬ábelieved that the fire originated in the kitchen of Flat 14, Block One. The cause is unclear although eye witnesses have said it was a kitchen appliance.

A resident at the scene told LSJ News what she saw.
