One man is known to have been rescued from the blaze

A major fire has broken out at Studio 338 in Greenwich, London, with dense clouds of black smoke visible for miles across London.

The blaze is said to have started at the club before spreading to a nearby recycling yard and industrial buildings. At time of writing, 15 fire crews are in attendance, and it's been confirmed that at least one man has been rescued from the fire and taken to hospital, though the extent of his injuries is not yet known. Nearby roads have been closed and locals have been advised to keep doors and windows closed to prevent smoke damage.

DJs including Oneman, Jozef K and Eats Everything have been tweeting messages of support this morning, and we join them in hoping that the club's staff are safe.

More on this breaking story when we have it.

** UPDATE 9 AUGUST Tragically, the man who was rescued from the fire suffering from severe burns - a member of Studio 338 staff identified only as 'Tomas' has since died from his injuries. There is still no word as to a cause for the fire: a group of men were arrested on suspicion of arson, but have since been released without charge. **
