Did anyone notice that a few months ago, may be 6, there seemed to have been quite a bad fire in 1 of the flats on the "estate" of new flats next to Deptford Bridge station where all the trendy 20 somethnigs live?

One of the flats was blackened and the windows were out and there were black scorch marks up the side of the building which seemed to have affected the flat above in particular.

Never notcied anything about it in the press or anything though

Noticed the very same at the time, HH. Can't recall it being reported, but then I don't keep a close watch.
