Another Massive Fire Outbreak In A Popular London Market

The Camden Lock Market, a popular tourist centre in North London witnessed terror yesterday as a huge fire ripped the popular destination apart. The London Fire Brigade reported that 10 firetrucks and 70 firefighters had been sent to the site shortly after midnight on 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. The market is very popular with tourists and Londoners, who are drawn to the area by the shopping and nightlife on offer.“The fire was moving very fast,” said an undisclosed eye-witness. “People were watching, but we were scared the building could explode at any time since there are restaurants with kitchens nearby.” A different part of the market complex was ravaged by a fire in 2008, and vendors were not able to operate for several months. Last month, a fire engulfed the Grenfell Tower in west London, killing at least 79 people.Photo Credit: Getty
