Fifteen fire engines and around 100 firefighters have been called to a fire at a restaurant on High Road in Wembley this morning (12 August).
The ground floor of the restaurant and part of the ducting (extraction system) from the ground to the third floor are alight. One man left the building before the Brigade arrived.
Station Commander Dave Hill, who is at the scene, said: “Firefighters were faced with heavy smoke issuing from the building on arrival.
“Our Control Officers have taken a large number of calls to the blaze due to the amount of smoke.
“The building is on the junction with Ealing Road and there are a number of local road closures in place so traffic is heavy. We would advise motorists to avoid the area where possible as we will be on scene for some time.”
