Eight fire engines and around 60 firefighters are tackling a fire at the renowned 'KOKO' nightclub on Camden High Street, which was under refurbishment works.

The Brigade was called shortly before 9pm on Monday and set the fire under control by 2:37am. Fire crews from Euston, Kentish Town, Islington, Soho, Holloway and surrounding fire stations are at the scene.

Part of the roof was damaged by the fire. 

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 cause of the fire is not known at this stage.

KOKO has hosted some of the world’s biggest artists, including Madonna, Ed Sheeran and Prince.
