BREAKING: Massive fire rips through Camden Market - 60 firefighters at the scene
Just checking back to 2008 when there was another big fire. At that time about 20 fire engines were sent. Here is the thread from Urban at the time. I remember it causing a lot of arguement at the time and several people got banned.
Apparently it started in a room above a burger restaurant Honest Burgers.
Fire breaks out at Camden Market in London as 60 firefighters battle the flames
"Such a shame, vital part of London, traders will be helped, but of course the land is in a highly sought after area, see these plans for some luxary flats..."
A fire starts in the dead of night when the place is bound to be almost entirely empty? Am I the only one who thinks that smells a bit fishy?
I started a thread about this. https://www.urban75.net/forums/threads/camden-market-is-on-fire-again.353258/#post-15144231
My friend's shop is OK (she is on the high street), but a large part of the upper market hall is gone.
on reflection i think this fire is beginning to look quite suspicious. Apparently the owners wanted the stallholders to leave.
Yeah it is a er... surprising... place for a fire to get that out of control.
Out of the ashes watch the phoenix executive flats rise...
Amazing how many of these developer-friendly fires there are

Whether you're a past it Londoner who's just sold dad's house in Kentish town and hankers for a distant youth, or an overseas investor, The Lock apartments are your space.
camden market already almost all in the hands of a single private billionaire developer.
Camden Market and crumbling Piers in past their sell by date coastal resorts do seem to be very unfortunate when it comes to fires

That's just what I was thinking.
In Sheffield we have the ski village.
Not to mention all those old listed buildings, they go up at the drop of a hat.
I blame the petroleum based cladding, the developers are doing us a favour knocking things down. Selfless bastards, heroes the lot of em.
Definitely something quite flammable about restrictive planning consents.
I know someone who has an office in that block
