July 10 (UPI) — A large fire broke out at London’s Camden Market on Sunday night.

“Eight fire engines and around 60 firefighters have been called to reports of a fire in #Camden Lock Market,” the London Fire Brigade tweeted.

All three floors and a roof of one building were alight, the LFB said and urged all people to stay away from the area. The building contained several businesses.

“Crews worked hard to get the fire under control and to stop it from spreading to neighboring buildings.” said Station Manager David Reid.

The LFB said it was able to get the fire under control during the early morning hours in London. There have not been any reports of injuries.

“Police were called on Monday at 12.10 a.m. to Camden Lock Market to reports of a fire,” said a Metropolitan Police spokesperson. “London Fire Brigade were already at the scene when officers arrived. It is unknown at this stage if any persons are injured; we await update.”

“I was just passing by when I saw the fire and they started to get firefighters and police, it was all very fast,” witness Joan Ribes, 24 told the Telegraph.
