Subject: Blaze shuts London's famous markets area

Full report on BBC News Online

Police are warning people to avoid parts of Camden, north London, after a fire ravaged the world famous markets area on Saturday.

Surrounding roads are expected to stay closed for several days as damage is assessed in Camden Canal Market.

Some 100 firefighters tackled the blaze, which severely damaged storage buildings and the Hawley Arms pub.

Six people, including three children, spent the night at a sports centre after homes were evacuated.

Camden Council said 100 beds were made available for people at the sports centre, and about 20-odd who initially turned up were found overnight accommodation at hotels.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "Chalk Farm Road and parts of Camden High Street, as well as surrounding one way streets, are expected to be closed for the next three or four days."

I have always admired The Cutty Sark, the sea clipper that is now located in Greenwich (London). Last year it did catch fire, but now has received a grant from the National Lottery to repair the damage.

Further to Amy's local burning down, Himself said it's a good job she wasn't in it at the time or we would have heard the explosion from here.  ;D

Because I have been to Camden for some while, I am still trying to picture the exact location of the fire.
