Among the 1,500 guests forced to evacuate the hotel shortly before 7 p.m. local time, Will.i.am was in town with his band to perform a concert in Hyde Park.

According to the BBC, the Hilton had played host to a music awards ceremony attended by the likes of Annie Lennox and Liza Minnelli, just hours before the blaze.
