Firefighters have issued a reminder of their barbecue safety tips following an early morning fire at a shop on Mordaunt Road in Harlesden

The fire destroyed the majority of a single-story rear storeroom. Before the Brigade arrived, eight people had left the building. There were no reported injuries.

The fire is thought to have started accidentally with a barbecue.

We don’t want to ruin people’s fun, but barbecues can be dangerous if not handled responsibly,” a London Fire Brigade spokesperson said. Never use a barbecue, whether disposable or not, indoors or on your balcony.

“Be careful when moving barbecues because they can stay hot for hours.” They also emit carbon monoxide fumes for several hours after they are turned off, so don’t bring them inside with you.”

The Fire Department was called at 0023, and the fire was out by 0221. Firefighters from Park Royal, Willesden, Wembley, and Acton were dispatched to the scene.

Five ways to keep your BBQ safe
Never use a grill, including disposables, inside or on your balcony.
Place your BBQ on level ground, away from anything flammable, such as sheds, fences, trees, or tents.
Use firelighters instead of petrol, paraffin, or other flammable liquids on your grill.
Supervise children carefully – small children can easily trip and fall, and older children can injure themselves while attempting to assist.
Be mindful of pets – dogs (and some cats!) enjoy snatching sausages and can cause accidents by getting under your feet. To be completely safe, keep Fido indoors or at least away from the grill.
