Fire!

Camden Market is burning!

They don't seem to know why yet, but it was spotted at about 7.20pm and well, its over 3 hours later now and its still going on.  I don't know much about Camden Market etc but I know it was a great source of livelihood for a lot of people.... so that not going to be very good at all.  I don't know much about London and Camden etc so I've probably got the wrong terms used in this but I don't care.

The pictures are quite amazing.... and scary.





It's times like this when I'm glad I'm not a firefighter, but my, do I have some respect for them and the amazing job they do.  I know I couldn't do it.
I wonder what the cause of the fire will be.... accidental, arson...? who knows.  If it carries on we could end up with the great fire of London all over again.
