Blaze shuts down adventure park in the UK

A theme park has been forced to close after a blaze in a cafe on site.

Eight fire engines are on the scene at Creaky Cafe at Chessington World of Adventures Resort in Surrey, London Fire Brigade said.

There are no reports of any injuries.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “There are some road closures in place to ensure people are kept a safe distance away.”

London Ambulance Service received a call about the fire at 9am and sent emergency response crews to the scene.

In a statement on its website, Chessington said: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Chessington will be closed today.

“If you had tickets booked for today they will be valid for another day in the future. Further updates will follow.”

A fire control officer said there was an “eight-pump fire” at the Creaky Cafe.
