The London School of Economics Has Been Evacuated Due To a Fire

This afternoon the London School of Economics was evacuated as a preventative measure due to a fire in Kingsway, also seeing underground stations Holborn and Temple closed.

The fire, which started underground as reported by the BBC, is thought to be caused by an electric failure although it is still being investigated.

There are no reported injuries as for now, but one can only think that the thousands of students trying to cram in the library will be emotionally affected by the events.

This is what Kingsway and the LSE campus looked like today.

A cloud of smoke inundates the university.
