As reported by the media, for example the world is, a call at 19.20, local time, yesterday warned of a large smoke on the north facade of the market, in Chalk Farm Road. First 12 fire trucks were reported in the area and finally the number increased to 20.
The fire originated in a market place where there are several food stalls and, next to them, t-shirt stores, where it seems that the fire arose.
To quell it, part of the hoses initially went to the windows of the popular Hawley Arms pub, consumed by the flames. The pub is known for being the favorite of singer Amy Winehouse, Peter Doherty and bands like The Zutons and Razorlight.
It is also a place frequented in his day by the Angels of Hell and currently one of the most popular nightclubs in the capital, which has been badly damaged by the flames.
In the neighborhood they are also other popular nightclubs of live music like Roundhouse, Electric Ballroom or Koko. The railway line located on the market has been cut. The fire also affected the operation of several subway lines and the rail network, as the Euston station was closed, and forced the diversion of buses, taxis and private cars.
Fortunately, the flames have not reached the Camden Lock market, one of the great attractions of London, visited annually by millions of foreigners, including us.
Hopefully the area recovers quickly. Much encouragement
Isaac, from London (United Kingdom)
