12 people have been evacuated from nearby homes after a large fire took hold of an office block on Strand-On-The-Green, Chiswick early this morning.

10 fire appliances and 70 firefighters and officers dealt with the blaze on the the first floor and roof of the building.

An aerial ladder platform and turntable ladder were also called on to the fire to fight the blaze from above.

Station Manager Carl St Paul who was at the scene said:

Our crews worked extremely hard in challenging conditions to get this fire under control and to stop it from spreading to neighbouring properties. Thankfully no-one was inside the office building when the fire broke out but around 12 people from homes close by were evacuated during the incident as a precaution.

London Ambulance Service treated a man at the scene for a non fire related illness.

The fire was under control by 4.30 am and firefighters will remain at the scene for some time damping down while also investigating the cause of the blaze.
