Eight fire engines and around 60 firefighters and officers were called to tackle a fire at a single storey warehouse used as a recycling depot on Hannah Close off Great Central Way in Wembley during the early hours of this morning.

Around 50 tonnes of rubbish was destroyed in the blaze.

Crews from Wembley, Park Royal, Hendon, Acton and surrounding fire stations were at the scene.
Station Manager Claiton Murray who attended the incident said:
Thankfully there were no injuries and because the location of the fire was on an industrial estate it wasn't near enough to roads or housing for the smoke to cause any disruption. Crews have worked hard to stop the fire spreading to other buildings.
The Brigade was called at 0214 and the fire was under control at 0654 but crews are expected to be at the scene for some time.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
