The roof of Guru Amardass Hall in Southall caught fire this Thursday afternoon (15 July).
Around 100 firefighters and 15 fire engines attended the blaze on Adelaide Road after the Brigade was called at 12.29pm
Part of the first floor and roof of the building are alight.
Station Commander Richard Janssens, who is at the scene, said, "Firefighters are tackling a significant fire which has taken hold of the roof of the building.
"There is also residential accommodation at the rear of the building, but at this stage, there are no reports of any people being involved.
"This is in a very busy part of Southall so there is a lot of traffic and we would advise motorists to avoid the area where possible."
Fire crews from Southall, Hayes, Hillingdon and Heston fire stations are attending.
The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.
