Six adults and three children were rescued by firefighters after a fire broke out at a restaurant and flats in Acton on Thursday (September 22).
London Fire Brigade were called to the blaze at the restaurant and flats at The Vale at 1.28am, before the fire was under control by 5.14am.
Part of the ground floor restaurant was damaged by the fire.
A family of two adults and three children were rescued from a third floor flat by fire crews.
All five were treated for smoke inhalation by the London Ambulance Service.
Another three adults from the a flat on the second floor and one adult from the first floor flat were also led to safety by firefighters down an internal staircase.
One person left the building before the brigade arrived and six people were evacuated from neighbouring premises.
Watch manager Louise De Silvo, who was at the scene, said: "The fire was difficult to locate and our crews faced difficult conditions.
"Firefighters worked exceptionally hard and prevented the fire from spreading to the flats above the restaurant so we were able to safely evacuate residents."
Six fire engines and 35 firefighters and officers from Acton, Hammersmith, Chiswick, Ealing and Kensington fire stations were called to the scene.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
