Blaze rages in London’s Soho district

Streets in London were cordoned off while firefighters tackled the blaze.
A massive fire engulfed the four-story offices of a major film company in central London on Friday, sending clouds of white smoke over the city skyline, the London fire department said.

Two firefighters with minor injuries were taken to the hospital as a result of the Future Films building on Dean Street in the city’s Soho district, London ambulance services said. The London Fire Brigade dispatched 12 engines and 55 firefighters to battle the blaze, which began befor 2 p.m. (9 a.m. ET). As a result of the fire, an adjacent street — the W1 — has been closed to traffic and pedestrians. Future Films founder and managing director Stephen Margolis had no comment about the reported fire when reached by CNN. Future Films has been involved in the production of over 120 films since Margolis created the company in 2000, including “Bend it like Beckham” (2002), “The Importance of Being Earnest” (2002), and “Transsiberian” (2008).
