Firefighters have issued a cooking safety reminder after a fire at a Chinese restaurant with offices above on Staines Road in Hounslow.
The restaurant's ducting from the kitchen to the first floor, the ground floor kitchen and a wash room on the first floor were destroyed by the fire.
The Brigade's fire investigators believe the cause of the fire was accidental and was due to an unattended saucepan of cooking oil.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: "You should never leave cooking unattended – if you have to leave the room, turn the heat off before you do.”
Seven people left the restaurant and 20 people left the offices above before the arrival of the Brigade. There were no reports of any injuries.
The Brigade was called at 1225 and the fire was under control by 1525. Eight fire engines and around 60 firefighters from Heston, Feltham, Twickenham and surrounding fire stations attended the scene.
