'Large fire' hits Camden market

A large fire has broken out at a market in Camden, north London.

A London Fire Brigade (LFB) spokesman said emergency crews were called to the blaze at Stables Market at around 8pm tonight.

Six fire engines and 30 firefighters were tackling the fire.

Smoke could be seen billowing into the air from the market.

Around 600 people were evacuated from the area before the fire brigade arrived.

An LFB spokesman said the blaze "can be seen from miles around".

He added: "We're working hard to bring the fire under control."

There are no reports of any injuries, he said, and the cause is not known at this stage.

Some 40 million people visit the market each year, according to its website. It houses dozens of stalls selling international cuisine, fashion and home decorations.
