Sony Corp. said a warehouse containing Blu-ray discs, CDs and DVDs was damaged in a fire following the riots in London.

The fire, which started about 11:30 p.m. yesterday, took 11 fire engines to contain and was described by the Metropolitan Police as “suspicious.” The warehouse in Enfield, north London, is still smoldering, and the company is not yet able to assess damage, Sony said in a statement from its U.K. offices. No employees were injured, the company said.

“We’re not entirely able to assess the stock levels because we’re not on site,” said spokeswoman Claire Millington in a telephone interview. “We will do anything we can to minimize delay to our customers,” she said.

Riot police and firefighters were deployed yesterday as the riots, triggered after a Tottenham man was shot and killed by police, continued for a third night. More than 450 people have been arrested in connection with the London unrest, according to authorities. Disturbances occurred in Hackney in east London, and Lewisham, Peckham and Croydon in the southeast and south of the city.
