Singer Will.i.am Flees Burning London Hotel

Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am escaped injury Friday after he was forced to flee London’s Hilton on Park Lane when the 28-story hotel caught fire.

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.

The London Ambulance Service confirmed to the BBC that no fire-related injuries were reported but that one elderly evacuee was treated for undisclosed health concerns.

Everyone in the hotel has been accounted for.
