On Dec. 23, 2017, a fire at the London Zoo killed Misha the arrdvark.
Four meerkats were presumed dead.
Ten fire engines and 72 firefighters and officers responded to the blaze, which was reported at 6:08 a.m.
Station Manager David George said: "The fire mainly involved the café and shop but part of a nearby animal petting area was also affected. When they arrived our crews were faced with a very well developed fire.''
A London Zoo statement said: ``Duty staff that live on site at the zoo were on the scene immediately, and started moving animals to safety. The London Fire Brigade were on the scene within minutes and the fire was brought under control by 9:16 a.m. A number of zoo staff have been treated at the scene for smoke inhalation and shock.''
