300 people were evacuated after a fire broke out at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on at around 10:00am on Thursday.

London Fire Brigade spent an hour putting out the blaze, with reports now stating that the fire is now under control. The club have allowed the stadium to be used as a vaccination center for the local area, and it is believed that the 300 evacuees were from the center.

It is believed the fire started in one of the kitchens in the stadiums. A statement from the club read: “Following a number of inaccurate and sensationalist reports, we can confirm that Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is operational as normal after a small fire, caused by an air compressor, broke out in one of the kitchens this morning (Thursday September 2). The fire was contained to a very small area and quickly put out with a fire extinguisher by the first person on the scene.

“The building was briefly evacuated as per standard safety procedures following the triggering of the fire alarm system, while a London Fire Brigade crew attended the stadium and carried out a safety inspection before departing the scene.”

The stadium has been operational since 2019, when the club moved from their old stadium White Hart Lane.
