The roof of a food processing factory on Elveden Road in Park Royal was destroyed by a fire in the early hours of Saturday morning (18 December).

150 people fled the building before six fire engines and around 40 firefighters arrived to tackle the blaze.

The fire started in the internal extraction system from the ground floor to the roof of the building.

The first of 10 calls to 999 was made by passers-by at 12.20am who saw flames coming from the roof at the rear of the factory.

Fire crews from Acton, Park Royal, Wembley, Willesden, North Kensington and Chiswick fire stations attended the scene and had the incident under control in just over two hours.

Firefighters used thermal imaging cameras to check for fire spread and any remaining hot spots.

There were no reports of any injuries.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
