A faulty oil lamp sparked a fire in a bedroom.

Firefighters were called to a building in London Road, Brighton, shortly after midnight on Saturday  following reports of smoke coming from the second floor room.

The fire was contained to the bedroom but other parts of the building, which was converted into flats, suffered smoke damage.

Nobody was injured in the incident.

A spokesman for East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service warned people to double check any lamps or other heating equipment to make sure they were safe.
