At least 12 people had suffered burns from a suspected "noxious substance" as about 600 revelers were evacuated from an east London club, local police said early Monday.

The incident occurred at about 1:10 a.m. (0010 GMT) and 10 people were taken to a hospital for treatment.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said the injured were treated for minor burns and their injuries are not life-threatening.

Police are still investigating the cause of the suspected chemical burns.
