FAMILIES had to be evacuated from their homes after fire broke out at a flat above a fish and chip shop in Hayes Town early this morning (Wednesday).
Fire crews were called to a blaze in the loft conversion above Munchies, in Coldharbour Lane, at around 1.15am.
The occupants got out of the two-storey building uninjured before firefighters arrived, and people in neighbouring properties were woken up by police and evacuated as a safety precaution.
Crews from the Heathrow, Southall, Hayes and Hillingdon stations hosed down the fire for more than two hours, before bringing it under control.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
