Watch: Large flames and plumes of smoke were seen in west London
About 60 people have been evacuated from their homes as fire crews tackled a blaze in west London.
Emergency services were called to Hereford Road in Feltham where trees, undergrowth and decking were alight at the rear of properties.
London Fire Brigade (LFB) said crews had managed to stop flames spreading to about 30 homes.
Ten fire engines and about 70 firefighters were sent to the scene. The cause of the fire was unknown.
A number of cylinders were removed due to a risk of explosion in the heat, LFB said.
Station Commander Tamer Ozdemir said firefighters had "worked incredibly hard in hot, arduous conditions" to stop the fire spreading.
"Their hard work has saved approximately 30 homes in Hereford Road.
"Around 60 residents were evacuated due to the amount of smoke."
LFB said it had received 44 calls about the blaze.
Crews from Hillingdon, Kingston, Southall, Surbiton and Tooting have been at the scene.
