The former Coach of Ghana Black Stars, Avram Grant, is safe following a fire outbreak in his house.

Report says the 63-year-old-gaffer fled after a “raging” blaze broke out at his block of flats in north-west London on Tuesday.

According to talkSPORT, Avram was in his seventh-floor flat when the flames began shortly before 11.30am. He stopped to warn neighbours of the fire as he escaped the flames.

Following the incident, Mr Grant said he “felt the heat and saw the smoke” before fleeing the premises. He told the news outlet: “I was speaking with my son and I saw a lot of smoke from the balcony. There was a lot of smoke, so I ran away.”

He added: “I knocked on a few of the doors to tell people.”

London Fire Brigade said it sent eight fire engines and more than 50 firefighters to the scene on Heritage Lane in West Hampstead.

A spokesman for LFB said: “Eight fire engines and 58 firefighters and officers have been called to a fire at a block of flats in Heritage Lane, West Hampstead.
