A fire broke out at a restaurant in Soho today (July 10).
Six fire engines and 35 firefighters and officers were called to the blaze in Gerrard Street, Chinatown, at 12.08pm, before brining it under control at around 3.50pm.
A total of ten people left the building before firefighters arrived and there were no reports of any injuries.
Two ladders were also at the scene to fight the fire, from height.
According to London Fire Brigade (LFB), the restaurant's basement kitchen has been damaged, as well as the extraction system in between the ground floor and the roof.
The roof was also badly damaged.
Station Manager Lisa Hicks, who is at the scene, said: "When crews arrived they were faced with a fire in the basement kitchen which they quickly extinguished.
"The fire is also affecting the restaurant's ducting and roof and firefighters are working hard in hot conditions to prevent it from spreading to neighbouring buildings."
The cause of the fire is not known at this stage.
