Four years after the library there (and much final show work) went up in flames, fire has returned to the Glasgow School of Art, just a year before it was to re-open.

It sounds worse this time, with water being pumped from the river Clyde to get enough pressure, and spreading to the old ABC cinema next door.

You feel unbelievably sad, for the artists and students' work there, for the builders and craftsmens' work in re-building and restoration.

As far as is known, no person has been hurt, which is a blessing...but...

This is such sad news, but relieved that no one was injured.
Toes crossed that it was accidental.

How awful. No words. Just sad.

Awful, awful, awful! I wish it weren't so.
