Firefighters have been at the scene of a fire at Peckham Levels in London after reports of an explosion.

Up to 25 firefighters have been tackling the blaze at Cerise Road in Peckham, which started shortly before 3.51pm today (February 10) at the multi-storey car park that was converted into a hub of shops, bars and music venues in 2017.

The small fire is not said to have caused any major damage, nor have there been reports of any injuries [via Metro].

A spokesperson for London Fire Brigade told the publication that the the cause of the fire remains unknown at this stage. Police told the Southwark News that the fire is believed to have been started by a mechanical fault in a parked car.

The market at Peckham Levels has been closed for the rest of the day while authorities continue to deal with the incident.

Recent events held at the cultural hub include a screening of last year’s Oscar-nominated movie If Beale Street Could Talk. Previous gigs held at the Auditorium venue have seen performances by DJ Special D and DJ Yung Milli for an Afrobeats soundclash event.

Of one the hub’s music venues, Ghost Notes, closed last February to focus on putting on more standalone events.
