Five people escaped injury after a fire in an Archway restuarant.

Four fire engines and 21 firefighters were called to Zias, an Indian restuarant in Holloway Road, just after 5am on Saturday. The blaze was under control about three hours later.

Residents in the flats above had managed to escape before the crews arrived. London Fire Brigade said the cause of fire is under investigation. Zias could not be contacted this afternoon.
