Fire fighters are dealing with a shipping container which caught fire this afternoon in Harlesden.
Four fire engines and 21 firefighters were called to a blaze in a shipping container in Channel Gate Road at 3.10pm.
The container was alight for several hours and a 25 metre cordon was been put in place as a precaution.
Crews cooled down a gas cylinder that was involved as some cylinders can explode when exposed to heat.
Fire crews from Park Royal, Willesden, North Kensington and Ealing fire stations are at the scene.
A spokeswoman for the Fire Brigade said the cause of the fire is currently unknown and is under investigation.
