Billows of smoke could be seen across west London after the fire broke out at around 8.57pm at a plastics storage yard in Windmill Lane.
This video shows flames rising high up into the air as the fire destroys a “large number of plastic wheelie bins”, which were stored in a large 100-metre square area.
Due to the thick smoke, which prompted around 40 local residents to dial 999, people were urged not to open their doors and windows during the night.
The cause of the fire is now being investigated but is currently unknown, a spokesman for the London Fire Brigade confirmed.
He added: “Smoke and flames from the blaze are very visible across west London.
“The fire is affecting a large number of plastic wheelie bins stored in a chain linked compound covering an area of around 100 metres by 100 metres."
He added: “It is producing a lot of smoke so if you live in the area please keep doors and windows closed as a precaution.
“Crews will be at the scene through the night. The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.”
Firefighters and crews from Southall, Heston, Ealing, Wembley, Ruislip, Feltham, Chiswick and Hayes fire stations were at the scene.
Road closures were in place while police officers and firefighters dealt with the incident.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police added: “Police were called by the London Fire Brigade (LFB) on Sunday, 15 October around 9.20pm to a fire at a commercial premises in Windmill Lane."
“Officers attended and the LFB were already on scene," he added.
