Residents were led to safety by fire fighters in breathing equipment after a blaze tore through a part of their home.
Fire crews from Willesden and West Hampstead raced to the house in Anson Road, Cricklewood after an emergency call just before 3pm on Wednesday April 22.
The fire is thought to have begun in a downstairs bedroom which housed a lady from St Mungo's homeless charity.
The blaze did not spread any further and crews got the fire under control by 3.24pm and managed to save 80 per cent of the property
Smoke damage affected other parts of the building but St Mungo's confirmed to the Times that contractors would be going in and repairing the building in time for the lady to move back in three weeks
