There must be something particularly flammable about pop-ups in Shoreditch – street food market Dinerama went up in flames back in July and now a fire has broken out at Boxpark this morning. London Fire Brigade were contacted just before 10.15am this morning and four fire crews were called to the scene, according to reports from The Evening Standard.
People have been snapping pictures of the smokey scenes on Twitter:

It looks like the fire might have started at Bukowski BBQ as it was looking particularly smokey and Boxpark has tweeted that the restaurant will remain closed for a bit.
But it's all been dealt with pretty swiftly and according to Boxpark's Twitter, both the upstairs and downstairs are both open as normal now. Phew.
