Fire at commercial property

Ten fire engines and around 70 firefighters and officers were called to a fire in Camden Lock Market at just before midnight on Sunday evening (9 July). An aerial appliance was also at the scene.

The first, second and third floors, plus the roof, of a building within the market were damaged by the blaze. The building contained a number of different businesses and market stalls. Thankfully no injuries were reported.

The Brigade's 999 Control Officers took 37 emergency calls to the fire which was highly visible across the area during its early stages.

Station Manager Andy Walton said: "The hard work and aggressive actions of the crews ensured the fire was contained to the area of the building which was alight when the Brigade arrived. The main road has re opened and the unaffected parts of the building have been handed over to the building managers."

The Brigade was called at 2357 on Sunday night (9 July) and the fire was under control by 0250 on Monday morning (10 July). Firefighters from Kentish Town, Euston, Soho, Paddington, Holloway and surrounding fire stations were at the scene.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
