MORE than 70 firefighters are battling a huge blaze that has engulfed a London pub.

Ten fire engines from across the capital were called following reports of a fire above a pub in Caledonian Road, Islington, at about 11.30pm on Wednesday. 

It is understood the first floor of the building, which also has flats above the pub was ablaze. 

An image shared on social media showed an ambulance close to where the fire had broken out, as well as some fire engines. 

A London Fire Brigade (LFB) spokesman said: “Caledonian Road has been closed between Pentonville Road and Caledonian Street. 

“Fire crews from Islington, Soho, Kentish Town, Stoke Newington, Lambeth and surrounding fire stations are at the scene.” 

He added the cause of the fire is under investigation.
