Firefighters battle to control a significant blaze in a building in the historic London market.

Dozens of firefighters poured water onto a big fire early Monday at Camden Lock Market, which is a popular tourist destination in north London. The local area is busy even when the market itself is closed.

The Metropolitan Police said it had also been called to the scene. "It is unknown at this stage if any persons are injured, we await update".

In 2014 a blaze ripped through the famous stables of the market, with more than 600 people evacuated.
