Fire breaks out in London’s Camden Lock Market

Fire breaks out at popular Camden Lock market in London

A big fire erupted early Monday at Camden Lock Market, a popular tourist destination in North London.

The London Fire Brigade said 10 fire-trucks and 70 firefighters had been sent to the site shortly after midnight Sunday when a blaze erupted near Camden Stables.

It said three floors and the roof of a building within the complex were on fire.

Ambulance crews also rushed to the scene, but authorities said no injuries had been reported.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: “Police were called on Monday at 12.10am to Camden Lock Market to reports of a fire.

“London Fire Brigade were already at the scene when officers arrived. It is unknown at this stage if any persons are injured, we await update.”

The market is very popular with tourists and Londoners, who are drawn to the area by the shopping and nightlife on offer.

A different part of the market complex was ravaged by a fire in 2008, and vendors were not able to operate for several months.

Monday’s fire came less than four weeks after a fast-spreading blaze engulfed the Grenfell Tower apartment block in West London, killing at least 80 people.
