Fire in Moorgate

Sorry folks, This post has nothing to do with intranets or social computing, rather I document a bit of local excitement visible from my workplace:

A fire broke out around 11:00 today in the old practice fire tower, part of the Milton Court development London EC2.

The sound of gas canisters exploding could be heard even through the triple glazed glass of our tower (CityPoint) The fire service arrived after about 20 minutes and after a period of apparent inactivity they rapidly brought the blaze under control.
My guess is that the blaze was started accidentally by workmen using acetylene cutters on or near the top floor of the structure.
