Four fire engines from Fulham, Chelsea, and North Kensington fire stations were at the scene, along with an aerial ladder platform (like a cherry picker). The Brigade was called at 2.15pm and the fire was under control at 3.98.
The road was closed and buses diverted during the incident.
The cause of the explosion and fire is now under investigation.
