Camden Guitars store burnt down in Camden Lock Market fire

A fire broke out at Camden Lock Market in the early hours of this morning (July 10th), causing many stall-holders and small businesses to lose their entire stock.

The BBC reports that around 30 stalls were based in the Market Hall, where the fire began, while other local businesses had goods stored inside the destroyed building.

One market owner believes about 100 traders have been affected and some would be "finished" as a result.

Independent instrument store Camden Guitars was one of those businesses whose property was caught up in the fire.

Owners Deicola and Leora Neves took to Facebook to inform customers of their situation.

“Dear friends, it is with broken heart that we give you this news: unfortunately our small shop in the market has burnt down in the fire that took the majority of the Camden Lock center,” said the couple.

“We are grateful that, according to reports, no one has been hurt. Feel free to pop into our big shop (23 Chalk Farm Road) as we are all here today. Thank you for all your continued support.”

About 70 firefighters tackled the blaze at the popular tourist attraction. There have been no reports so far of anyone being injured from the fire.

The cause of the blaze is currently unknown.
