Fire breaks out at old dairy site

A blaze has broken out at a dairy site in west London where it is thought gas cylinders could be stored.

Emergency services erected a temporary safety cordon in case the cylinders exploded as a result of the heat at the Unigate factory complex.

The fire at Wood Lane in Shepherd's Bush affected industrial buildings on the dairy site, but nobody was reported injured – although more than 100 people are believed to have been evacuated.

Dairycrest said it sold the building in 2002 but a spokeswoman said she did not who the current owners are.

The cause of the fire, attended by around 75 firefighters and 15 fire engines from across the capital, is still being investigated.

"It's a challenging and developing incident at the moment and we're likely to be at the scene for some time," said station manager Rod Horton.
