Eight fire engines, an aerial ladder and about 60 firefighters were initially sent to the area after the first emergency call at just before midnight on Sunday, London Fire Brigade said.
However, this was quickly increased to 10 fire engines and 70 firefighters.
The brigade appealed to people on its Twitter account to “please avoid the area”.
Numerous photographs on social media showed the fire was well alight with the flames towering high above the surrounding buildings.
There are no injuries reported at this time.
