Duchess Of Cornwall - Tom Parker Bowles evacuated after blaze

Britain's Duchess of Cornwall's son had to be evacuated following a blaze near his home.

Tom Parker Bowles was forced to leave his house in Bayswater, central London, yesterday (05.01.13), when a ''raging fire'' broke out in a five-storey mansion nearby, but fortunately nobody was injured and he took to his Twitter account to praise the emergency services for their actions.

Tom - who took shelter in his neighbour's home with his wife and two children - tweeted: ''Raging fire just broken out 2 doors down from us in Palace Court. All of us evacuated. Police, neighbours and fire brigade magnificent.

''Still burning but no injuries/casualties, thank god. Allowed in to grab stuff. @LondonFireincredible x (sic)''

Following the incident, Tom, 38, praised his ''very nice neighbours'' for all their help and said the blaze brought out the ''best of British'' spirit in his street.

He said: ''It must have been about 1.30am when officers came in to get us all out. The kids were still in their pyjamas.

''We have some very nice neighbours who took us in after we were evacuated.

''The police and fire brigade were exemplary. I really cannot praise them enough. They did a perfect job.

''Incidents like this really do bring out the best of British.

''We've been able to go back and pick up some essentials but we won't be able to return until tonight.''
