Firefighters have issued a safety warning after a candle is believed to have caused a fire on Barchester Close in Uxbridge.
Part of the second floor of a house was damaged by the fire and part of the building’s soft was also damaged. There were no reports of any injuries.
The Brigade’s fire investigation team believe the fire was caused by a bedroom curtain that was set alight by a candle left unattended.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson 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 anything else that can easily catch fire.”
The brigade was called at 1505 and the fire was under control by 1732. Firefighters from Hillingdon, Hayes and Heathrow fire stations attended.
