A fire at a single storey wooden structure containing a domestic gas regulating station closed railway stations in Cricklewood at the weekend.
Four fire engines and around 21 firefighters and officers from Willesden, Finchley, West Hampstead and Hendon fire stations attended the incident Saturday morning.
Fire crews tackled the fire, then set up a 100 metre safety cordon and monitored local gas levels while national grid engineers worked to isolate the gas supply.
Cricklewood Lane and Cricklewood rail station were temporarily closed as a precautionary measure.
The Brigade was called at 1.55 AM and the area was declared safe again just after noon.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
