Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.I.Am was among 1,500 guests who were evacuated from the Hilton Park Lane hotel in London last night after a fire broke out.
The London Fire Brigade were immediately called to the scene with 20 firefighters putting out the blaze. The Fire Brigade later tweeted
We believe the fire at the Park Lane Hilton is now out but are still checking the hotel's ducting just to make sure.

There is still confusion as to whether the fire began in one of the basement kitchens or on the second floor, but an investigation is underway.
