Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters tackled a fire on a canal boat in a boat yard off Camley Street in King’s Cross.
One adult male left the boat before the Brigade arrived and was taken to hospital by London Ambulance Service. Most of the boat was damaged by fire. Firefighters also removed and cooled two propane cylinders as these can explode when exposed to heat.
The Brigade was called at 1510 and the blaze was under control by 1639. Fire crews from Euston, Kentish Town, Soho and Islington fire stations were at the scene, as well as fire rescue units from Euston, Bethnal Green and Wembley fire stations.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
