But Ebanks did not reveal the contents of the report.
The local government minister had instructed that a probe be carried out into the response by the fire service personnel involved.
The fire wiped out an entire block comprising residential dwellings and a few businesseson Regent Street, Beeston Street and Chestnut Lane.
Some 60 persons have been left homeless as a result of yesterday’s blaze.
