The big news today was the dramatic plume of smoke that hovered over the town for most of the afternoon -- very reminiscent of Lord Voldemort. Sadly, a fire consumed one of the houses in town. Not a lot of details are available, and many rumours are swirling, but it appears a heater caught light. The house had a lot of paint cans, so some of the smoke could be quite toxic. It was a large house and those of us watching from the office couldn't believe how long it kept burning, with flames high enough to be seen over the multi-storey school in front of the fire. We thought a neighbouring house caught fire but it seems that was just a rumour.
Below are some pictures and I will try to upload a video as well.
