Firefighters battled with the blaze for close to an hour until they put it out completely.

Around 300 people had to be evacuated from the nine-story building, which has doubled up as a Covid-19 vaccination centre.

No injuries have been reported so far, with the current extent of the damage being a sole air compressor.

Spurs have yet to issue a statement on the blaze at their new home, which they moved into in March 2019.

The Fire Brigade was called at 10:01, with two engines immediately being dispatched to the scene.

The first responders wrestled with the blaze for a matter of minutes, putting it out by 10:59.

Tottenham will be back in action a week on Saturday, travelling to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace.

Nuno Espirito Santos’ side will enter the early kick-off top of the Premier League tree following three wins for their first three league matches of the new season.

But the Portuguese is refusing to get carried away with his troops’ good start to the new campaign.

He said: “That doesn’t mean anything at all, that doesn’t mean anything.

“I invite everybody, not only the players, but our fans to don’t pay attention to that.

“Don’t pay attention to that. Let’s keep on working, we still have a long way and a lot of aspects to improve on.”
