Firefighters from Wallington were called to a blaze at a derelict block in Carshalton, in the early hours of this morning.
The crew were called to Durand Close at about 1.40am, and found a fire spreading in the building.
The fire is believed to have been started on the ground floor and had spread up to the first and some of the second floor.
A Fire Rescue Unit from Croydon fire station was called to the scene, because of difficulty accessing parts of the building.
After extinguishing the blaze firefighters used thermal imaging cameras to check the building over, before leaving the scene at about 5am.
The fire investigation unit is looking into the cause of the blaze.
