The blaze engulfed six floors of the block of flats.

Fifteen fire engines and around 100 firefighters were called to the flats on De Pass Gardens at 3.31pm, as people were evacuated from their homes.

Another picture showed the smoking block of flats with flames partly extinguished and a fireman's hose spraying on it.

The ground floor to the sixth floor of the block of flats is now alight, according to the London Fire Brigade.

The Met Police is also said to be providing assistance, including closing nearby roads. "We ran out. The fire brigade came but they found it hard to find a water supply at first", Gheorghe said.

RustHeart is somewhat inspired by the children's classic tale The Iron Giant , 80s action movies, and Rick and Morty . It will largely be action-oriented with the exception of players being able to create their own robots.

Crews from Barking, Dagenham East Ham and other surrounding fire stations are at the scene.

No injuries have so far been reported at a fire in east London, a London Ambulance spokesman said on Sunday, adding that ambulance units were still at the scene. "Transport is available from De Pass Gardens to take people there".

Video posted to social media shows flames engulfing the flats off Galleons Drive, which are just a mile away from Thames View Junior School, and smoke billowing from the building.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known. And 30min and not fire brigades!

The London Ambulance Service said it was called out shortly after the fire began, but said "there are no reports of any injuries at the moment".
