'Big ball of black smoke'

Ciaran Sinclaire, 19, saw the fire in West Drayton.

He told Get West London:

I was walking into Tesco when I saw a massive big ball of black smoke rise into the air coming from Trout Road, the road next to where the car park is.

I heard sirens come within minutes of people phoning.

Everyone stopped and just looked as naked flames reached over the top of the building - I saw it with my own eyes and so did many others.
