There are more than 1,000 shops and stalls at the Camden Lock Market, well known as a centre of social life for many.

A major fire broke out early today at London’s Camden Lock Market. Ten fire engines, an aerial ladder and about 70 firefighters fought the blaze on the scene, near a nightclub and a covered market, London Fire Brigade said. With no reports of any casualties, the fire has been brought under control, informed the brigade. However, crews will remain at the scene overnight damping down remaining hot spots, it said.

“The Brigade’s 999 Control Officers took 37 emergency calls to the fire which was highly visible across the area during its early stages,” it said on Facebook.

The first, second and third floors, plus the roof, of a building within the market, that had different businesses, were damaged by the blaze.
