  • A fire has broken out at Google’s UK headquarters in Victoria, south west London. The fire appears to have been started on the rooftop, possibly due to the barbecue that is used there.

    Right now, it appears the fire is under control and that no one was hurt. The 6 floor building has been evacuated after six fire engines and 25 firefighters were called to the see just before 2pm local time. A Google spokesperson told the Telegraph:

    All I know is that there was a barbecue on a roof terrace above one of the Google floors. We have all been moved away from the building and we are waiting for the fire brigade to tell us when we can go back in.
