The warehouse is made up of  mixed factory units.

Station Manager Jeff Lisle who is at the scene said:

Crews are working very hard is difficult conditions. Firefighters are using aerial ladder platforms to tackle the fire from numerous vantage points and ensure the blaze doesn’t spread to neighbouring warehouses. While we are making excellent progress, we expect to work on this fire into the night.

This isn’t a residential area but the smoke is travelling quite a distance so do keep windows and doors shut if you are local.

20 fire engines are at the scene including engines from Heston, Northolt, Chiswick, Wembley, Park Royal, Ruislip, Ealing, Hammersmith, Willesden and North Kensington fire stations.

The brigade was called at 6.52 pm.

The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.

The London Ambulance Service initially classified the incident as serious, but scaled back when it became clear there were no injuries.

Specialist units remain on the scene on standby.

The fire was brought under control in the early hours of Sunday morning.
