Caramelized – Former La Brasserie (now Caramel) suffers fire – Frontage of former La Brasserie premises in South Kensington – now Caramel – burnt to a crisp on morning of 6th December 2018.
The damage to the restaurant was extensive

 

Damage to both the restaurant and four floors above the building as a result of the “deliberately lit” fire is now reported to be “serious” though thankfully there were no injuries. Around 30 people had to be evacuated at around 3am and the blaze was contained eventually at 4.30am after the arrival of 6 fire engines and 40 firefighters.

 

One of the men is described as wearing a black/navy blue parker jacket with lighter coloured fur-like lining around the hood, dark jogging bottoms with lighter coloured horizontal lines on the rear, a round-neck dark-coloured sweatshirt and black trainers. The other is described as wearing a light coloured brown jacket, dark coloured trousers and black shoes.

 

Witnesses and those who know the identities of the men are asked to call 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

    Those two look a bit shady.
    It looks like there is extreme damage, also to the upper section.
