The property was damaged after a fire broke out in Lambs Lane South at around 4.55am.
The London Fire Brigade (LFB) has confirmed no one was injured during the incident.
“The Brigade’s control officers used 999Eye to live stream the blaze from a smart phone to screens in the control room, allowing for greater visibility of the incident,” said a spokesperson for the LFB.
“When a 999 call is received by the Brigade, the caller may be asked if they would like to provide a live video stream of the scene using their smartphone. The control officer will send a text message with a secure, one-time-use link that opens a live stream direct from the phone to the control room. 999Eye provides better situational awareness and allows us to offer the best advice based on live footage.”
Crews from Wennington, Dagenham, Hornchurch and Barking brought the fire under control by around 6am.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
