Sony Says London Warehouse Damaged by Fire After Rioting

Aug. 9 (Bloomberg) — Sony Corp. said a warehouse containing Blu-ray discs, CDs and DVDs was damaged in a fire following the riots in London.

The fire, which started about 11:30 p.m. yesterday, took 11 fire engines to contain and was described by the Metropolitan Police as “suspicious.” The warehouse in Enfield, north London, is still smoldering, and the company is not yet able to assess damage, Sony said in a statement from its U.K. offices. No employees were injured, the company said.

“We’re not entirely able to assess the stock levels because we’re not on site,” said spokeswoman Claire Millington in a telephone interview. “We will do anything we can to minimize delay to our customers,” she said.
