Fire at Camden nightclub Koko
07 January 2020
Eight fire engines and around 60 firefighters tackled a fire at a nightclub under refurbishment on Camden High Street on Monday 6th January.
Part of the roof at Koko - one of London's most famous music venues – was damaged by fire. The Brigade Control took twenty-two 999 calls to the visible blaze.
Station commander Jon Lewis, who was at the scene, said: "Firefighters quick action and hard work in the early stages meant the fire was contained to the roof and saved the rest of the building. Fire crews will remain at the scene throughout the morning."
The Brigade was called at 20:56 and the fire was under control by 02:37. Fire crews from Euston, Kentish Town, Islington, Soho, Holloway and surrounding fire stations are at the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
