Three teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of arson after a fire in a block of flats in Surrey.
The fire, at the four-storey Elbourne House in Lumley Road, Horley, is thought to have started when a carpet roll was set alight in a stairwell.
Surrey Fire and Rescue Service were called to the flats about 18:00 GMT on Thursday. No-one was hurt.
A 14-year-old boy from Horley and two 15-year-old boys from Smallfield remain in police custody.
Insp Dan Gutierrez thanked local shops which provided shelter and refreshments to people evacuated from the building.
