Eltham fatal house fire 'not suspicious'

A fire in which one man died and another man was seriously injured is not being treated as suspicious.

The victim died when flames swept through the property in Grangehill Road, Eltham, south-east London, in the early hours of Sunday.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said a second man was in a critical but stable condition in hospital.

He said following initial investigations officers were not treating the blaze as suspicious.

Up to 20 firefighters tackled the fire at the two-storey house, which was left badly damaged.
