London, England, November 16, 2007Smoke billows over a warehouse in Hackney, East London, England, on November 12, 2007.

More than 75 firefighters worked on the large blaze, which burned near demolition and construction work for a new Olympic park.

Black smoke also blurred the London skyline and obscured major towers.

London was awarded the 2012 Olympic Games on July 6, 2005, after a three-year bid.
