Firefighters are battling a massive blaze that has engulfed the famous Glasgow School of Art Mackintosh building, which had been undergoing a multi-million restoration project following a devastating fire in 2014.
“There is a fire at the Mackintosh Building. The fire brigade are currently on scene,” posted the Glasgow School of Art's Twitter account.

Authorities ordered evacuations after fire crews arrived at the scene to tackle the blaze. Photos and videos posted online show plumes of smoke and tongues of fire rising up in the air.

Glasgow School of Art is on fire again. Heartbreaking. My thoughts go to all students and staff, and I hope no one was caught in the blaze.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service confirmed that the blaze has spread to adjoining buildings. “The fire has taken hold several properties including the 02 ABC nightclub causing extensive damage,” the service said in a statement.

Now knock it down and build homes for the homeless.
All the millions spent on preserving historic buildings when people are sleeping on the streets is a disgrace just shows where this country's priorities lay.
