London's Oxford Street experienced its worst blaze in 25 years last week when New Look's store near Tottenham Court Road went up in flames. The blaze is thought to have cost stores £1million in lost trade. Up to 30 fire engines and 150 firefighters were called to the scene to tackle the blaze, which started on April 26 at 7pm. A London Fire Brigade spokesman said the fire was severe and that the fate of the New Look building had not been determined. The fire also affected Marks & Spencer, which is next door to the New Look store, and a small amount of stock was lost due to smoke damage. Parts of the street were closed on Friday, affecting Muji, Esprit, Shellys, Next, Dorothy Perkins and Ravel, among others.
