Six fire engines and around 40 firefighters tackled a fire at a shop with flats above on Sunday (13 August) in Ealing Road in Wembley.

London Fire Brigade confirmed that a storage room on the lower ground floor was destroyed by fire. Thankfully, there were no reports of any injuries.

A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “Residents were advised to keep their doors and windows shut due to the smoke and avoid the area as there was heavy traffic congestion.”

The cause of the fire is believed to have been electrical.
