One Direction star Liam Payne escaped unharmed after a fire broke out in his home.
The singer was at home in the flat on the 34th floor of a luxury block in Canary Wharf, in London's Docklands, when firefighters were called.
Two men and a woman were treated for burns after the blaze started on the balcony but a spokesman for the star said he was unharmed.
Station manager Laurie Kenny, from London Fire Brigade, said: "Firefighters worked quickly and professionally to get the fire under control as quickly as possible.
"Around 30 people left the building before we arrived and were not injured. Two of the occupants had superficial burns to their hands and the third had burns to his hands and face. All three have been taken to hospital."
Six fire engines and 35 firefighters were called to the scene. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
