Seventy firefighters rushed to the spot after a massive fire broke out at a building in London’s famous Camden Lock Market in the wee hours of Monday morning, the London Fire Brigade said.
However, it was put under control soon by the fire brigade. “The fire is now under control,” London Fire Brigade said. There were no reports of any casualties.
Ten fire engines were sent to the spot, which was near a nightclub and a covered market, the emergency service said.
“The first, second and third floors, plus the roof, of a building within the market are alight,” the London Fire Brigade tweeted earlier.
“The Brigade’s 999 Control Officers have taken multiple calls to the highly visible blaze and people are asked to avoid the area,” the brigade said in a Facebook post.
“The fire was moving very fast,” the Press Association quoted an eye witness as saying. The eye witness further said that the fire was flying through the air to the surrounding areas.
A London Ambulance Service spokeswoman said they were called to a fire at 00:07 am (local time). “We sent a clinical team leader and our Hazardous Area Response Team to the scene. We have not treated any patients, and we remain at the scene,” she said.
