Footage has shown the terrifying moment a huge fire tore through an Acton pub on New Year's Eve.
Six people were rescued on December 31 after the blaze tore through The Aeronaut in High Street while hundreds of revellers were celebrating the New Year .
More than 300 people and 12 staff evacuated the pub before the fire brigade arrived and six people were rescued from the first floor via a ladder.
Ten fire engines and 72 firefighters were called to the blaze.
According to the Daily Mirror , the pub had been hosting a New Year's Eve 'Circus Spectacular' for its customers, which featured 10 different performers.
But just after midnight the pub went up in flames and 340 people and 12 staff were evacuated.
Musician Matt Blair, of two-man band Rayguns Look Real Enough, had just played at the venue and said he was forced to escape via a roof.
He tweeted: "We're fine but 2017 has already got off to a bad start. One of our favourite venues that we just played burned down. Everyone is fine.
"Manic. We were upstairs, had to get on a roof area and luckily found a ladder we could climb down. Scary stuff.
"It was pretty scary and shocking. Physically we're all fine. Just a bit shocked and sad."
A spokesman for London Fire Brigade (LFB) said half of the ground floor was alight and the first and second floors, including the roof of the three storey building, were gutted by the fire.
A statement from the pub said staff were devastated but "feeling blessed that no one was hurt".
The statement said: "As you might have heard our New Year has started in a very upsetting way, but we’re also counting our blessings.
"Just 30 minutes after the countdown The Aeronaut caught fire, but thanks to the quick thinking of our staff, and the evacuation plans they have had in place over the years, everyone got out the building safely.
"That’s the main thing, and everything else comes second.
"The building we love so much has been extinguished by the incredible firemen who acted so quickly.
"At this point we don’t really know how bad that damage is, but for the moment we’re concentrating on people.
"We will never be able to fully articulate our gratitude for the swift action of the police and fire services in managing the incident and for the many words of support we have received from the Acton community.
"The list of people we want to thank is too long to comprehend right now, but when we settle down we’ll make that list.
"But for now we just want to say how grateful we are that no one was hurt."
The fire was put out at 4.42am with crews from Acton, Chiswick, Park Royal, Hammersmith Richmond, Willesden, North Kensington and Wembley at the scene.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
