Industrial Estate fire - Wembley

Fire at commercial property

Around 60 firefighters and officers tackled a fire in an industrial estate on East Lane, Wembley this evening.

The first three floors of a commercial building were alight and firefighters worked hard to stop the fire spreading. The building also contained cylinders which can explode when exposed to heat and so crews cooled them down with water. 

Brigade control officers received over 35 calls to the fire which was very visible and close to a train track and local train services were disrupted for some time.

8 fire engines from stations including Wembley, Northolt, Stanmore and Park Royal fire stations were at the scene.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time.

The Brigade as called at 1849 and the fire was under control at 2248 although crews expect to  be damping down for a number of hours.
