Big Fire at Nottingham

Anyone know anything about the big fire in Nottingham Train station this morning?

They are calling it 'an incident' on the news, does that mean terrorists do you think?

Just found this info:

Re: Big Fire at Nottingham

They mention it was close to the car park Mups, what is it with car parks these days? I didn't think that there would be much combustible material on a car park....Or a railway station come to think of it.

Steel girders, if heated too much lose their rigidity and collapse.

He added that the fire was believed to have started in a toilet.


I know they have strong curries up there - but that's ridiculous!!!

Already posted the same link dongles. I thought it looked like it was inside, not outside the station, and the flames were spreading in the roof and all through the foyer.
