Firefighters tackled two fires in Uxbridge in as many hours on Monday, with the blazes a short distance apart.
Crews were first called to an address in Vine Lane, Uxbridge, just after 2.15pm.
The fire, which started in the loft, was put out soon afterwards, but caused extensive damage to the two-storey house.
No one was injured, and the cause is being investigated.
At about 3.45pm, crews were called to Uxbridge again, this time to Harlington Road - just south of Vine Lane - to reports of a garage alight.
The garage was gutted, and a detached bungalow was damaged.
A temporary cordon was set up due to a gas cylinder in the property, but firefighters successfully cooled it down.
The fire was extinguished just after 5pm.
A man was taken to hospital with burns to his arms.
