A raging fire erupted at the London Zoo in the early hours of December 23 as courageous firefighters rushed to put out the insane blaze.

The area also contains a petting zoo and four meerkats are also unaccounted for.

A fire broke out at London Zoo early today, engulfing a cafe and shop near an animal petting area, although it was not immediately clear if any of the creatures were hurt.

The cause of the fire has not been determined, and the zoo closed for the rest of the day.

London Ambulance said paramedics treated eight people at the scene - six for smoke inhalation and two for minor injuries, with one of those treated taken to hospital.

TV footage from the scene showed the Adventure Cafe and shop to be badly damaged.

London Fire Brigade later posted on Twitter, saying that the blaze was now "under control", but that firefighters were still on the scene, and would remain there throughout the morning to continue "damping down" the fire.

"We will aim to re-open when we know it is safe to do so for animals, staff and visitors".
