116 years old Mandarin Oriental hotelThere are more than 120 firefighters tackled the fire at one of the most celebrated and popular five star luxury hotel, Mandarin Oriental in central London. It produced thick black fumes visible for miles around and required people inside the building to evacuate Wednesday.

 

 

There were no immediate reports of injuries. The firefighters wearing breathing apparatus were searching the structure to see if anyone still was inside.

 

 

The cause of the fire was not yet known. One witness said that labourers had been working earlier on the roof of the 116-year-old hotel, which recently underwent extensive renovations.

 

 

The hotel employees and the guests include the famous popstar Robbie Williams were evacuated to nearby Hyde Park. They were given bottles of water as they waited for instructions.

 

 

The firefighters were working extremely hard to bring the fire under control and likely to be on the scene for several hours.

 

 

The road in front of the hotel in London’s ritzy Knightsbridge neighborhood was closed, causing rush-hour traffic chaos in the area.

 

 

The hotel guests are being accommodated at other hotels in the neighborhood.  The parts of the busy Knightsbridge Underground station also were closed as a precaution.
