FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze at a house in Avon Road, Greenford, this afternoon (17).

The roof of a semi-detached house was alight, though there were no reports of any injuries.

Station Commander Graham Adams, who was at the scene, said: "Crews worked incredibly hard in hot and arduous conditions.

"They used a 32m ladder to put water on the fire from above and to monitor the blaze.

"Crews will remain on the scene damping down and some local road closures will remain in place."

Control Officers took eight calls about the blaze. The brigade was called at 1.13pm and the fire was under control by 3.19.

Six fire engines and around 40 firefighters from Southall, Northolt, Hillingdon and Heston stations were at the scene.

The cause is being investigated.
