It will take fire crews most of today to complete the job. "Though the fire is now surrounded, this will be a protracted incident, and crews are expected to remain on scene for a considerable time dealing with deep-seated pockets of fire,” according to a spokesperson from the London Fire Brigade.

In a statement, Safehouse said it plans to contact customers once its representatives were allowed access to the property, the source reported. The operator also posted a statement on its website expressing condolences to its tenants and offering them contact information.

The Safehouse property contained approximately 500,000 square feet of self-storage space, its website stated. In addition to traditional self-storage, the property offered office space, truck rentals, a retail store that sells packing supplies, and a café.
