Camden indoor market: 27th February 2017
London Fire Brigade were called to a major indoors market and shop to tackle two blazes last night
They have urged businesses to get sprinklers, after they helped keep the fire under control at Camden Stable’s Market on Chalk Farm Road last night.
The indoor market’s sprinkler system helped control the fire until the fire brigade arrived at around midnight on Monday.
Fire crews were able to confine the fire to the ground floor unit and the blaze was under control by 01.30am.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “This incident highlights the clear benefits of sprinklers to businesses and we would urge all companies and business owners to install them.
“In this case the sprinklers controlled the fire spread, limiting damage to the building and preventing anyone from being put at risk from any fire. As well as limiting fire damage and being potentially life saving devices, sprinklers and other fire suppression systems help with business continuity by minimising disruption and allowing businesses to get back to normal as soon as possible.”
The fire is believed to be accidental and due to an electrical fault.........................
