A total of 80 firefighters and 15 fire engines are tackling the huge blaze in a shop with flats above on Minerva Road in Park Royal. The public have been asked to avoid the area. The fire comes just three weeks after a blaze engulfed a number of properties less than a mile aware on Sunbeam Road, Park Royal, near Acton Cemetery. The London Fire Brigade has received more than 50 calls regarding the fire and have urged nearby residents to shut windows and doors.
A spectator recording footage of the fire can be head saying: “One of the units of the industrial site has caught fire.
“You can hear in the background emergency services rushing to the scene. Some have already arrived.
“This fire looks out of control. As you can see from the smoke it’s been burning for quite awhile.”
The London Fire Brigade wrote on Twitter: “We’ve taken over 50 999 calls to the blaze in Park Royal.
“There is a lot of thick black smoke so please close your doors and windows if you are nearby.”
