Chessington Theme Park in London Closed for the Day After Fire

Chessington World of Adventures Resort, a zoo and theme park southwest of London, was closed today after a fire at an on-site restaurant.

Eight fire engines attended the scene to control the blaze, the London Fire Brigade said in a statement on its website. The park was closed to the public and the fire has not caused any injuries, LFB said. Chessington said on its website that the park would close “due to unforeseen circumstances” and that pre-booked tickets will be valid for a future visit.

“The fire is affecting a large part of a restaurant within the park, and crews are working hard to bring it under control,” fire spokesman Craig Carter said in the statement. The cause of the blaze is unknown at this time, LFB said.

The park is owned by Merlin Entertainments Plc, which operates about 100 attractions in 22 countries, including Madame Tussauds museums and Legoland parks. The private-equity backed company raised about 957 million pounds ($1.6 billion) in a November initial public offering.
