Part of Oxford Street in central London was closed after a fire broke out on the first floor of a building.
London Fire Brigade (LFB) said crews were called at 11:00 GMT. A spokesman said 20 firefighters and four fire engines were sent.
The fire, in a building which is being refurbished, was brought under control just after 12:00, LFB said.
The street, closed between Tottenham Court Road and Berwick Street, reopened about half an hour later.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, said LFB.
