  • Heathrow fire: West Drayton inferno battled by 70 firefighters at coal depot

Large black plumes of smoke can be seen billowing into the sky from Heathrow airport.

Around 70 firefighters in 10 fire engines were called to the old coal depot in West Drayton, now a container storage yard, at around 2pm on Sunday after an industrial conveyor belt, 15 vans and three articulated lorries caught alight, according to London fire brigade.

"God hope everyone is ok".

A second person who lives close to the site that is now ablaze, wrote: "Fire at a storage yard in West Drayton!"

Station Manager Jon Holt, who is at the scene, said: "The fire is very visible and is producing a lot of smoke".

One witness said on Twitter that her flat shook following the explosions.

Another added: "Alot of smoke going up in the West Drayton fire".

Authorities had to switch off the power to the overhead electric wires that run the trains, in order to allow emergency services to access the storage yard where the fire broke out.

A third said: "Hope everyone around the West Drayton and close by surrounding areas are safe from the fire that's broken out, so so scary".

One eyewitness told the Mirror: "There were what looked like armed police in the street closing off the roads and getting everybody back - they all had all the proper gear on".

"Residents and businesses in the area should keep their windows and doors shut and drivers should avoid the area if possible".

'The Brigade's 999 control officers have taken 54 calls to the fire. Around 15 people left the yard before the arrival of the Brigade.

"The Brigade was called at 1416".

"Fire crews from Hillingdon, Heathrow, Feltham and other surrounding fire stations are at the scene". Transport for London services in the area were also affected for a short time.

A Met Police spokesman said officers were assisting with road closures.

TfL rail tickets are now being accepted for other services between Heathrow and Paddington.
