An abandoned record shop in Holloway Road went up in flames on Saturday morning – less than 48 hours after police stormed the building in a drugs raid.
Fire crews were called to the old Metro Music store opposite Holloway Road Tube station at 6.30am.
No one was injured in the blaze, which took 35 firefighters almost two hours to bring under control.
On Thursday, the Highbury police team posted on Twitter to say they had executed a warrant at the building and seized drugs.
London Fire Brigade said the cause of the blaze was under investigation.
