One Direction star Liam Payne has allegedly been forced to leave his £2million flat after a fire at the property.
As we previously reported, the Best Song Ever singer's pal - named on Twitter as Andy Samuels - suffered burns as a result of the accident, which occurred when he tried to re-fuel a patio heater on the terrace of Payne's flat.
The Mirror has since reported that three of Liam's friends were injured, with another man and a woman apparently suffering minor burns to their hands.
Payne was thought to be in the kitchen at the time of the fire, but quickly helped extinguish the flames.
The tabloid claims that 80% of the star's balcony was destroyed, and took 35 firefighters to put out blaze.
The fire service added that 30 people were forced to evacuate the building - which is situated in Docklands, London.
Station Manager Laurie Kenny, who was at the scene, is quoted by The Mirror as saying: “Firefighters worked quickly and professionally to get the fire under control as quickly as possible. About 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."
Payne is yet to comment on the fire, with a spokesperson for the star saying: "We are not disclosing any information.”
