Fire crews from West Hampstead and surrounding stations are trying to control the flames, but the cause of the fire is not yet known. Station manager Clainton Murray said: "The fire is believed to have started in a flat on the fourth floor. "The fire is also affecting the roof and in the early stages was very visible for miles around."
About 50 people have been evacuated from the flats, the fire service said
Angelica Malin lives near to the flats and can see the blaze from her bedroom window. "I can see firefighters inside as the roof is on fire and there's two men on cranes working on putting the roof fire out," she said. "It's so scary - my flat is filled with the smell of smoke. The firemen have been amazing and I feel comforted by the incredible response."
