London Zoo Fire Kills One Animal, Others Left Missing


NBC News reported that one aardvark has died and four meerkats are missing after a fire broke out at a zoo in central London early Saturday. In a statement, zoo officials said, a number of staff at the ZSL London Zoo were also treated for smoke inhalation and shock after the blaze tore through the Animal Adventure area. The zoo said, "Sadly our vets have confirmed the death of our nine-year-old aardvark, Misha." The zoo said the other animals were being closely monitored by its vets but appeared to not have been affected by the blaze.
