Firefighters have issued candle safety advice after five people were led to safety after a fire at a flat in Bassett Road, Ladbroke Grove.
Part of a flat on the second floor of the building was damaged by fire.
A woman and four children were led to safety by firefighters. A further woman left the property before the Brigade arrived. There were no reports of any injuries.
The fire is believed to have been caused by a tea light candle left unattended.
A spokesperson for the London Fire Brigade said: "Candles are one of the most common causes of fire. It’s really important that you never leave a candle unattended and keep them away from curtains and anything else that can easily catch fire.”
