Around 36 hotel guests and 250 members of hotel staff, including singer Robbie Williams, were evacuated from the Mandarin Oriental Hotel yesterday after a fire broke out. \r\n\r\nFirefighters are likely to remain at the scene throughout the day (June 7) and fire investigators will then take over to establish how the blaze started. A spokesperson from the hotel said: \u201cIt is too early at the present stage to assess the full extent of the damage. A full investigation is underway and will take time to complete.\u201d\r\n\r\nJust evacuated Mandarin Oriental hotel to see this.... absolutely crazy!
