The first, second, and third floors and the roof of the building were on fire, the London Fire Brigade tweeted earlier.

A devastating fire has broken out in a popular lock market in London with no injuries yet reported.

 

Fire-fighters have brought under control the fire in a building in London's Camden Market, the London Fire Brigade said on Monday.

 

They said on Twitter the "fire is now under control but crews will be damping down into the morning".

 

The first, second, and third floors and the roof of the building were on fire, the brigade tweeted earlier, saying more than 70 fire-fighters and 10 fire engines were on the scene.

 

The cause of the fire was unknown and there were no immediate reports of any injuries or casualties.

 

London's Camden Market had an incident of fire in 2008 when market storage areas and shops in the locality were set ablaze and adjoining houses were damaged.

 

A major part of the market had then remained closed for several months.

 

In June, at least 80 people died in a devastating fire in London's 24-storey Grenfell Tower, reports Reuters.
