Fire at commercial property

Firefighters remain at the scene of a large fire at an industrial estate on Long Drive in Greenford this morning (Wednesday).

Three warehouse units were badly damaged by the fire. There were no reports of any injuries.

At the height of the incident, more than 120 firefighters were tackling the fire, with 20 fire engines, four aerial ladders and two fire rescue units at the scene.

Station Manager Graham Adams, who was at the scene, said: “Firefighters were on the scene within minutes of receiving an emergency call. This is a massive industrial site and thanks to the hard work of our crews a number of businesses remain unaffected by the fire.

“Three industrial units have been badly affected by the fire and crews are currently working to limit the damage to a fourth unit. Conditions were challenging for firefighters today as the wind has really picked up and this is hampering their efforts.

“Once the fire is completely out, our fire investigation team will be on site to establish how the fire started.”

Some roads around the industrial estate have been closed.

The Brigade was called at 2328 (12 February) and the fire was brought under control at 1517 (13 February) and the first two fire engines were on the scene within five minutes of the Brigade receiving a 999 call. Fire crews from Northolt, Wembley, Southall, Ealing, Harrow and surrounding fire stations are at the scene.

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